Summer Reads 2017: Arizona


Memoirs of a Polar Bear - Yoko Tawada

A multi-generational tale about polar bears that travel the world from Cold War Germany to Canada. It explores the philosophical and artistic implications of being a polar bear, and just what it is like to have a vulnerable heart in a terrifying body. Are you hooked? I was!


There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyoncé - Morgan Parker

Wild, glorious poems about black womanhood. Wild enough to capture Beyoncé, even. This book is a very powerful read, and a good example of what a few words can accomplish. It is for both connoisseurs and those typically adverse to poetry.



Such Small Hands - Andrés Barba

A wonderful and strange meditation about a newly orphaned girl who arrives at an orphanage with only a doll to her name. The other girls are bewildered by the intensity of her passion and hatred towards it. A book that is equal parts violence and beauty. This is a good short book that you can carry around with you this summer.


Panther - Brecht Evens

I usually say 'You can't judge a book by its cover', but in this case you can! The inside of this beautiful graphic novel is a work of art. A young girl's cat passes away and a panther prince crawls out of her dresser to comfort her. If you are an artist at heart, this is the book for you.



Hostage - Guy Delisle

If you are already a Guy Delisle fan, you were probably wondering what he would do next. He had stopped travelling with his family, and was no longer going to be doing his usually travel journalism. He has however stuck with the nonfiction genre for Hostage. It follows Doctor Without Borders administrator Christopher André who was kidnapped and taken to a unknown location in the Caucasus region, and held for three months in one room.


Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home - Nicole J. Georges

We just received this Graphic Memoir this week in store, and I cannot wait to start it. This book will resonate with anyone who has had a less than perfectly behaved dog. I know I do.


The Vegetarian - Han Kang

This book is absolutely beautiful yet disturbing. A woman has a nightmare one night that changes her life forever. It is an allegorical novel about modern day South Korea. It explores issues such as the female body and autonomy. This is a must read for anyone who likes twisted novels that make you think.


Cats & Plants - Stephen Eichhorn

That's right, an art book with pictures of cats with plants! It is full of beautiful collages that are intricate and well thought out. It is a perfect conversation starter to put in your living room. If you take a look in this book, you will fall in love with it like me.


So Pretty / Very Rotten - Jane Mai, An Nguyen

This book is a collection of comics and essays on Lolita Fashion and Cute Culture. This has always been something that has fascinated me. I love going to conventions and seeing the different types of groups attending them. One group that always stood out to me was the Lolita dressed girls. So much time and effort goes into each look. This book offers an insight into the world and dedication of Lolita fashion.


Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars - Kai Cheng Thom

This novel marks the beginning of an exciting, provocative, and important career. It just won the Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers. It is a coming of age story of a young Asian trans girl. I am very excited to read it.

This shelf belongs to...Jessica Bebenek!

Each month, Librairie Drawn & Quarterly invites a local author or artist to curate a shelf in the store. Starting mid-July and continuing through August, we bring you recommendations from Jessica Bebenek!


Jessica Bebenek is a poet, essayist, and trans-disciplinary artist who divides her time between Montreal & Toronto. You can find her recent writing in PRISM, CV2, Vallum, and 30 Under 30: An Anthology of Canadian Millennial Poets, among other places. In her most recent poetry chapbook, Fourth Walk (Desert Pets Press, June ’17), she explores grief, mourning, and whatever we’re left with when things end. You can read more about Jessica on her blog and follow her on twitter and instagram at @notyrmuse.

All of Jessica’s picks will be 15% off for the month of August. Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll find on her shelf:


Tell everybody I say hi - Tess Liem
Slow, tender, purposeful, and deeply felt. In this new collection of poetry, Liem writes with the intimacy of bare belly to cool hardwood. For me, “it is enough on a regular basis.”

New Construction - Two More Stories
, Sam Alden
These two brilliant long comics, the story of a collective house caring for their severely mentally ill roommate, and of traumatized siblings reconnecting, are both creepy as hell. The dialogue is pitch-perfect and Alden alternates scenes with the grace of a master filmmaker.

Garments Against Women - Anne Boyer
This book has been so essential in my thinking around women’s crafts, capitalism, how our culture values certain labours and people, and what poetry can accomplish. Alternating between the mundanity of poverty and a cyclical intellectualism, Boyer has created a powerful, uncondescending axis of poetry, theory, and life.



This Accident of Being Lost - Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
In this brilliant trans-genre collection, Betasamosake Simpson speaks directly, painfully honestly from the mundane struggles of Indigenous resistance against colonialism. Through her songs and stories, she muddles humour, anger, joy, frustration—her complicated existence, the molten centre of this book.

Pond - Claire-Louise Bennett
Easily my favourite book of 2016, Pond is a collection of short fiction with an entrancing, devastatingly wry narrator. From her sequestered life in a cottage in northern UK, Bennett’s narrator muses on beauty, sexuality, intellectualism, and our romanticization of nature with deft wit.



Sticks Angelica, Folk Hero - Michael DeForge
In this new collection from my favourite comic artist, DeForge builds a fantastical mirror of Ontario parkland inhabited by cross-dressing moose and blackmailing mosquitoes. With trademark eeriness, DeForge asks us to question what kind of ‘heroes’ humans can be while we impose ourselves on ‘nature’.

Portrait of the Alcoholic - Kaveh Akbar
An absolutely gorgeous collection of poems. Akbar writes about alcoholism as a lover he slowly, painfully leaves, meditating all the while on love, family, and God.

what purpose did I serve in your life - Marie Calloway
In turns shocking and profound, this work of auto-fiction exploring female subjectivity, sexuality, and online/irl human connection has become an instant cult classic. If you are a human who interacts with women, you should read it.

Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals - Patricia Lockwood
Lockwood writes sensational, absurd, beautiful, stupid poems. She brings Nature to life, gets it drunk at a basement wedding, makes it fuck everything, and then leaves it out to dry.

1996 - Sara Peters
A shockingly underrated collection by one of the most talented poets writing today. Peters writes about childhood and desire with delicious menace. I come back to this book when I want to remember how to write.

I Await the Devil’s Coming - Mary MacLane
Published to great acclaim in 1902 when MacLane was just 19, this sorrowful and ecstatic memoir has been all but forgotten since her death. Alternately viewed as a virtuoso philosopher and condemned as a lunatic in her own time, MacLane’s work undoubtedly heralded the rise of unapologetic women and queers in confessional writing.

Summer Reads 2017: Kate

As usual, there are a hundred and one great books begging to be read, and summer is no exception! Here are the books that have made it into my hands over the past month and those that are coming close to the top of the stack:


August - Romina Paula
Romina Paula's first translation into English is a moody examination of grief. In a reverse coming of age, the book's narrator, Emilia, leaves Buenos Aires for rural Patagonia to scatter her best friend's ashes, five years after her death. Addressed to this friend, the book is conversational, intimate, and - over the few weeks in which it takes place - I found it impossible to put down.

Whereas - Layli Long Soldier
I look forward to reading this debut collection of poetry from Oglala Sioux writer, Layli Long Solider. Whereas comes highly praised, and it's no surprise given the heavy lifting it takes on. In a direct response to the Apology to Native Peoples, issued and quietly buried in 2010 on behalf of the US government, Long Soldier interrogates the language of bureaucracy and how that language is experienced by bodies.

Mucus in My Pineal Gland - Juliana Huxtable
Artist, performer, DJ, and writer Juliana Huxtable's collection of hybrid writing - billed as poems, performance scripts, and essays - takes its name from the  seat of the soul, the pineal gland, also known as the third eye. It's confessional and hyper experimental at the same time, layering personal stories with meme-play, and Huxtable's trenchant take on twenty-first century living.


Uncomfortably Happy- Yeon-Sik Hong trans. by Hellen Jo
Delve into the Korean countryside with two artists who decide to leave city life in Seoul behind (all that traffic...) for an idyllic, secluded life in the mountains. The first time English translation of Yeon-Sik Hong's memoir is a funny, disconcerting exploration of modern life and all of its anxieties. Perfect reading for muggy summer days in the city when you need a taste of the simple life.

La Main du Peintre - Maria Luque
Maria Luque's charming, colourful illustrations pair perfectly with this strange tale of a ghostly visitation. The ghost of one armed Candido Lopez, a soldier and artist from the Paraguyan War, appears before Luque with a request to help him complete his unfinished paintings. In exchange he promises to tell her the story of the war and how his life came to be intertwined with that of her great grandfather!

The Gift - Barbara Browning
This is the latest publication from Emily Books, the sometimes publisher, sometimes pusher, of weird books by women. Set during the height of the Occupy Movement, Browning's The Gift blurs the boundary between life and performance, truth and fiction, in a series of strange correspondences, inappropriate intimacies, and performance art projects. The book is accompanied by a series of dance videos online and I anticipate reading the book with web browser open - ready for a hypertext experience!


Writers Who Love Too Much - ed. by Dodie Bellamy + Kevin Killian
This new anthology collects seminal texts and out of print, otherwise impossible to find, rarities form the literary configuration know as New Narrative. This pioneering wave of transgressive literature emerged from San Fransisco circa the 1970s and includes revered writers such as Kathy Acker, Dodie Bellamy, and Denis Cooper within its ranks. Combining the confessional with the conceptual in a style both gossipy and uninhibited, it's a direct ancestor of much of the hybrid literature I love today. I can't wait to familiarize myself with this critical body of writing.

The Estrangement Principle - Ariel Goldberg
Writer and photographer Ariel Goldberg's book length essay on queer art explores the pitfalls of policing identity politics and the problem of using language to adequately define. Adopting Renee Gladman's notion of estrangement as a methodological procedure, it examines the term "queer" as a marketing strategy, a utopian ideal, and an alibi for oppression.

Everything is Flammable - Gabrielle Bell
When a fire destroys her mother's home, New York based cartoonist, Gabrielle Bell, flies across the country to Northern California to help put her life back together. The books consists of a series of memoir comics drawn from this period in the artist's life and deals with anxiety, financial hardships, and social dysfunction in her inimitable style.


Boundless - Jillian Tamaki
Jillian Tamaki's latest book Boundless is a collection of short stories that spans the mundane to the weird with a level of writing that rivals the ingenuity of the cartooning. As always, Tamaki's idiosyncratic sense of humour shines through alongside quiet revelations. Today is the last day to pick up your (mandatory) copy while it's still our Graphic Novel Book Club pick! Discussion tonight!

Sunshine State - Sarah Gerard

I'm enjoying meandering through this collection of personal essays from writer, Sarah Gerard. Melding memoir and a journalistic impulse, she unearths personal and geographical histories of her home state, Florida. Stories about her family and relationships delve into weird jobs, addictions, and loss with scorching urgency, yet she always brings levity with her cool and reflective prose.

Notes of a Crocodile - Qiu Miaojin trans. by Bonnie Hui
Qiu Miaojin became a cult literary figure in 90s post Martial law Taiwan, following her work addressing sexuality and depression openly. I read this for my colleague Helen's Reading Across Borders Book Club and it was a pleasure to discuss. This, her debut novel, is a queer coming of age story told through a fragmented series of notebooks that convey her fraught college experience. I'll be reading Last Words from Montmartre next!

Summer Reads 2017: Benjamin

Summer! Here’s what will be accompanying me through the swelter.



The Idiot - Elif Batuman

I've been licking my chops over this new Elif Batuman novel for some time now. From the author who gave us the excellent The Posessed: Adventures in Russian Literature and the People Who Read Them comes another book that shares a title with a Dostoevsky novel. The Idiot is part bildungsroman and part historical fiction that follows Selin—a daughter of Turkish immigrants—as she makes her way through her first years at Harvard and navigates identity as it churns.


Whereas - Layli Long Soldier

Formally innovative, immediate, gut-wrenching: Whereas is the superlative debut poetry collection from Layli Long Soldier. The Oglala Lakota poet struts the tightrope between being an American citizen and an enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, between the political and the personal, and between being a mother and a daughter. Long Soldier directly confronts the responses and apologies made by the American government to Native American peoples and tribes, and confronts what drips from the language. Whereas will undoubtedly appear on my year-end-list, and until then, I look forward to reading it many times over.


The Book of Disquiet - Fernando Pessoa

What better way to spend languid summer afternoons than immersing oneself in literature's most infamous portrait of melancholy? I jest, but the stunning, new & expanded edition of Pessoa's The Book of Disquiet from New Directions is too significant to leave for dreary days.




Blind Spot - Teju Cole

Blind Spot is a collection of over 150 photographs from award-winning novelist and essayist Teju Cole, each accompanied by lyrical, ephemeral prose evoking the temperaments of Anne Carson, W.G. Sebald, and Chris Marker. Recommended to induce daydreaming.



Boundless - Jillian Tamaki

Woo! I have so much love for this strange collection of stories from the incomparable Jillian Tamaki. We catch up with an aging producer of a canned sitcom-porno, drift on a six-hour atonal drone, and go toe-to-toe with humankind's eternal foe: bedbugs. Freewheeling, virtuosic, and downright hilarious, Boundless is a tour-de-force from the endlessly imaginative Tamaki.



Rag Cosmology - Erin Robinsong

The poems contained in Rag Cosmology undulate freely, slipping traditional line breaks and sometimes abandoning horizontal displacement altogether. While formal experimentation is a major cog in Robinsong’s work, it is her pristine motions of thought, both outward and inward, that makes her crystalline craft tick.



This Accident of Being Lost - Leanne Betasamosake Simpson

Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, acclaimed Nishnaabeg storyteller and poet, has returned with a collection of searing songs, poems, and stories. Simpson has long been a favourite of mine, and it is her grit, her commitment to uncompromised truth that seeps from every fragment, every turn of phrase, that keeps me coming back for more. Through a fusion of traditional storytelling and wry contemporary realism, Simpson manages to protect Indigenous knowledge while simultaneously providing valuable context for non-Indigenous readers.



Yôkaï - Shigeru Mizuki

I can't imagine I'll be lugging this beautiful book of Mizuki's art to the park, but it will certainly be splayed on my coffee table. This edition features over 200 black and white drawings (+ 32 coloured by the master himself!) of various yōkai—a generic term encompassing supernatural beings borne of Japanese folklore—rendered in Mizuki's distinct and elegant weirdness.



Uncomfortably Happily - Yeon-sik Hong trans. Hellen Jo

In 2005, cartoonist Yeon-sik Hong and his wife moved to the Korean countryside in order to escape the hubbub of Seoul. Uncomfortably Happily explores—in exquisite, minimal art—the unexpected anxieties that crop up in “simple” living. I find myself on the opposite trajectory, from the gurgle of a small town to the roar of a big city, which for me makes Hong's quiet observations on rural life all the more captivating.


Debths - Susan Howe

Susan Howe, a titanic figure in American poetry, has come out with her 13th book with New Directions—a puzzling and alluring assortment of lyrics and collage poems that confront language in relation to memory, how language shapes and warps, enters and even contaminates memory. This is my first encounter with Howe's work, a run-in that has sent me hunting after her back-catalogue.

Graphic Novel Book Club: Boundless by Jillian Tamaki




Each month we host a Graphic Novel Book Club meeting, open to all, during which we hang out and informally discuss a featured graphic novel. Our pick for this July is Boundless by Jillian Tamaki We will meet at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard Avenue West) on Wednesday, July 12th at 7 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by Librairie Drawn & Quarterly staff member Alyssa Favreau. Join us for refreshments and collective insights! 

***We are offering a 20% discount on Boundless from now until the meeting date!*** 


Eisner and Governor General's Award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki (This One Summer, SuperMutant Magic Academy) is back with the inventive and incisive Boundless, a collection of stories that explore the links, and gaps, between real world and virtual. Her characters, who in turn become obsessed by a "mirror Facebook," or shrink slowly, incontrovertibly, into nothingness, offer glimpses of distance and transcendence from one's identity, culture, relationships, and self. Each more beautiful and innovative than the last, the magical stories brilliantly showcase Tamaki's skill as artist and storyteller.

Summer Reads 2017: Luke


Craig Thompson - Blankets

A summer reading list: why not a story that takes place in the snow-dusted silence of a Midwestern childhood? Of course Blankets transcends Wisconsin and Michigan. It is so much more than a love story or a coming of age story. We weave through memory, helplessness, euphoria, self-loathing, high school corridors, family and religious dynamics and Craig Thompson`s world of deep feeling. He courageously reveals intensely personal anguish ridden episodes of his life while also showcasing an utmost joy (seemingly) specific to adolescence.

Vanessa Davis - Spaniel Rage

These comics give insight into the process of making comics, personal anecdotes & contain stories that are at times poignant and at times hilarious. The cover and first story are illustrated with the same beautiful full-colour palate that shuffles in and out of Davis’ Make Me A Woman, while the rest of the book is in crisp black and white. At times we can see errant lines that Davis has chosen not to erase. This unvarnished style provides an even more personal feel to this collection of diary comics and drawings from her sketchbooks from 2003-2004.

Michael DeForge - Big Kids

The perfect book to keep in a pocket to pull out during any summer downtime. DeForge’s Big Kids is creative, minimalist & yet highly narrative.  Big Kids has charming characters, oozes with romance & explicit themes, and is dreamy in its use of colour. In his signature style, DeForge recounts the story of high school love, adolescent transformations and new dimensions. Big Kids is blunt and mysterious, masterful and weird.


Edited by Carolina De Robertis - Radical Hope : Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times

I am very much enjoying reading this epistolary collection edited by Carolina de Robertis. Such diversity of voice. Grounding to hear Junot Diaz as if he were talking to a close friend, Lisa See talking to her 4 year old grandson, Jewelle Gomez writing to her late grandmother, and many others. The letters are personal & intimate. As is politics, where real bodies are hurt, real families separated. It's been great to read correspondence that touches on such a grand swath of issues of the moment. The book is helping coax me out of a shock (that so many of us are still in, no?).

Naomi Klein – No Is Not Enough

In This Changes Everything, Klein lays out the ways in which we are in decade zero for climate action to prevent catastrophic, runaway climate change. The brilliant journalism, incisive analysis, and incredible tact in being at seemingly perfect locations to cover so many important events, showcases Klein`s genius. The book zooms in on our cognitive dissonance and compels us to act: the climate battle is something that no one should shy away from. I highly anticipate her follow up – No Is Not Enough which Bill McKibben blurbs as being “not just the first word on Trump, but in powerful ways the last word as well.”

Rebecca Solnit - Wanderlust: A History of Walking

After devouring a stack of her texts of late, Rebecca Solnit is still what I want to be reading all of the time. So much of what I read in the current events realm seems to point back to her thinking. I find it astounding that Hope In the Dark was written in 2004, and not in the aftermath of November, 2016. Her essay "Men Explain Lolita to Me" in The Mother of All Questions paired so well with Sarah Weinman’s article in Hazlitt "The Real Lolita". A Field Guide to Getting Lost harmonized with last year's outdoor reading season. Here’s to hoping Wanderlust goes well with the upcoming summer months.


Julia Cooper - The Last Word: Reviving the Dying Art of Eulogy

A book examining loss, personal and collective grieving & the eulogy in contemporary society: summery indeed, no!? Julia Cooper explores the ways in which we have difficulty as a society discussing death without oversimplifying or limiting. Loss is something we will all endure and strikes in any and every season. Cooper’s thrilling tone in The Last Word is at once personal, academic, and pop cultural. She discusses public grieving in Black Lives Matter Movements and provides historical context as well for numerous celebrity deaths including those of Leonard Cohen, Prince, David Bowie, Whitney Houston & Michael Jackson. The Last Word shows us how alienating it can be to confront personal loss in the face of a society that expects us to grieve in such rapid and formulaic ways. She meditates on the discomfort that comes with death and calls for more space to be given for that discomfort. She even highlights the way certain social media companies profit from online grieving. #enjoyingthisread #summeryindeed

Magda Szabo - The Door

Like many others, ever since finishing that four part series that takes place in Naples (& elsewhere) I have been searching for an equivalent. Why is it so difficult to find something that is as satisfying as the Neapolitan Novels? I’ve perused lists of equivalents and have yet to be convinced. Perhaps I don't want to be. Comparisons can be limiting after all. The Door seems indeed to have much in common with the Neapolitan Novels: both explore the relationship of two female protagonists, one of whom is a writer. Both deal with poverty, societal pressure, “craziness,” and the literary and illiterate. Both have appeared in translation years after the original. But comparisons are the worst! I look forward to giving this Szabo book a try for it’s own sake.

Durga Chew Bose - Too Much and Not the Mood

Durga Chew Bose`s Too Much and Not the Mood succeeds heartily in achieving an inconclusive, perpetual arriving at, which keeps the reader`s attention. Her witty, dense essays are readable and challenging. The book contains discussions of New York City in the summer, childhood & family dynamics, reading & study, travel anecdotes, upspeak, and (90s era) basketball (stars). Yes, this book has been great indeed to read in full shade, full sun nearby.



Alejandra Pizarnik - Extracting the Stone of Madness

One thing I am very much enjoying about Extracting the Stone of Madness, translated Yvette Siegert, is the fact that it is a bilingual edition. I love seeing how the translator grapples with the original: “Es muro es meur muro es mundo mira muere.” I love how the French (which Pizarnik often uses) in the original so often goes untranslated. The poems have strong themes of childhood (lots of dolls!), death, isolation, madness. An intense & mysterious collection from the last decade of Pizarnik’s life.

Bonne lecture!
