9780141040813: Cockroach

Our unnamed narrator has left his Middle-Eastern home and settled in a chilly, western city. He lives as an exile, untrusted, unwanted, foreign. A stranger trying to make sense of a strange land.

But he brings with him secrets - of a family tragedy that he failed to prevent and a childhood overshadowed by war. And as he wanders snowy streets, falling in love with fellow exile Shoreh, he realizes that to find a place in this alien world it is necessary to become someone else. Someone he never dared to be in his past life . . .

Review:

Gripping. A humane and compassionate storyteller ( New Statesman)

Beautifully paced, filled with picaresque wit and misadventure, anchored by a dark and uncompromising vision . . . Rawi Hage has joined the great pantheon of Canadian writers whose work we read with admiration and excitement (Colm Toíbín)

Compelling, intriguing, deceptive ( Financial Times)

Further evidence of Hage's large and unsettling talent ( Guardian)
