    Revenge of the Librarians by Tom Gauld

      Tom Gauld returns with his wittiest and most trenchant collection of literary cartoons to date. Perfectly composed drawings are punctuated with the artist’s signature brand of humor, hitting high and low. After all, Gauld is just as comfortable taking jabs at Jane Eyre and Game of Thrones.

      Leonard Cohen: On a Wire

        I read the French version of Leonard Cohen: On a Wire by Philippe Girard. For those unaware, Leonard Cohen is Canada’s version of Bob Dylan. I am sure if he would be alive, he would not like that comparison. When it comes to poetry, Cohen beats Bob Dylan hands down. Philippe Girard brings grace to Montreal’s modern-day poetic bard. Cohen’s music is weaved in his personality. He is a fabric of the diversity that makes Montreal unique. Leonard Cohen has wandered throughout the world but Montreal was always his home. Philippe Girard captures the man and the myth through flashbacks of the best and worst in his storied life. Philippe’s art is a blend of Quebec and European influences that come into his own. You will love reading and marvel at the lush art. It’s about time the rest of the world gets to read this amazing book from Drawn & Quarterly.  Leonard Cohen: On a Wire is translated by Helge Dascher and Karen Houle.
