Guy Delisle In Town! Tout le monde en parle!

What puts the D+Q office in the best mood ever? Whenever we get to see one of our authors outside of ye olde booth at a convention, especially here in Montreal! So last week, imagine how surprised and thrilled we were when I answered the phone on Thursday to hear that it was Guy Delisle in town from France as the Radio Canada show Tout le monde en parle flew him in for a taping! (Though sadly there is no online footage.) So we went out to lunch on Friday afternoon.

Joining us is Guy's translator Helge Dascher. And the two basked in the ray of a glowing starred review from Publishers Weekly.

Pascal Girard joined us, and after lunch we headed over to the Librairie so Guy could stock up on his North American comics. He was very excited to see Big Questions as Anders is one of his favorite cartoonists and Dogs & Water was one of his favorite books. He also picked up Goliath by Tom Gauld and Robot Dreams by Sara Varon for his daughter.

Oh and he signed books, of course. You too, Pascal Girard! Get to work! There's no such thing as a free lunch!

Here are Pascal and Guy with store director Jason Grimmer. This was moments after Guy was recognized by an uber comics fan from Toronto who practically double plopped in disbelief that he was in Montreal, at the D+Q store, and he stumbles into not one, but two D+Q cartoonists signing their books. If we could have it happen every day we would! Trust us!
