Product description

Review

Dark and compelling, a restlessly energetic and kaleidoscopic work (Financial Times)

A rich and often beautiful, brave, engrossing, intelligent, literate, funny and very human novel. I enjoyed this book in so many ways. I relished this novel - for its compassion, its lyricism and its great human spirit (Guardian)

Exuberant, sublime, startling, surreal and breathtaking (Sunday Times)

Quite simply, a brilliant writer . . . Funny, angry, perceptive and poignant, Carnival confirms Hage's status as a star in the literary firmament (Toronto Star)

Every form of laughter this side of uproarious guffawing - the smile, the chuckle, the suppressed giggle, the nudge nudge, wink wink - comes into play in Rawi Hage's Carnival. A display of literary derring-do . . . both his funniest and his most serious book (Globe and Mail)

About the Author

Rawi Hage was born in Beirut, Lebanon, and lived through nine years of the Lebanese civil war during the 1970s and 1980s. He emigrated to Canada in 1992 and now lives in Montreal. His first novel, De Niro's Game, won the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award for the best English-language book published anywhere in the world in a given year, and has either won or been shortlisted for seven other major awards and prizes. Cockroach was the winner of the Paragraphe Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction and a finalist for the Governor General's Literary Awards. It was also shortlisted for the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Award and the Scotiabank Giller Prize.
