Rawi Hage’s second novel Cockroach takes place during a frigid Montreal winter and details the picaresque adventures of an unnamed protagonist, a recent immigrant from the Middle East and self-professed thief who often envisions himself as a giant cockroach.

I read his De Niro's Game previously, and loved it, but Cockroach is a whole other level of brilliant. I'd place this novel alongside works by Kafka and Dostoevsky and other such greats.

Cockroach, Hage's more capacious, ambitious second novel, takes exile as its point of departure, and reads almost as a sequel to the first.

With a surprising degree of humor, Hage's second novel (after IMPAC Dublin-winner DeNiro's Game) explores the peculiar politics of Montreal's immigrant communities through the bleak obsessions of a misanthropic thief.
