CockroachBook - 2008
"One of the most highly anticipated novels of the year, COCKROACH is as urgent, unsettling and brilliant as Rawi Hage's bestselling and critically acclaimed first book, DE NIRO'S GAME. The novel takes place during the winter in Montreal's restless immigrant community, where a self-described "thief" has just tried to hang himself. Rescued against his will, the narrator is obliged to attend sessions with a well-intentioned, but naïve therapist. This sets the story in motion, leading us back to the narrator's violent childhood in a war-torn country."--Publisher.
