"COCKROACH has its own blurred edges; it is a novel with clear stylistic and literary ambition..., yet it owes a great deal to crime fiction, and the delirious and phantasmagorical elements rest on the bones of a fairly conventional thriller....[I]t uses the immigrant experience as a means to explore far murkier territory, and its concern is with a displacement deeper than exile."
Ben Jeffery, Times Literary Supplement, 06/19/2009Review:
"With a surprising degree of humor, Hage's second novel explores the peculiar politics of Montreal's immigrant communities....The novel's gritty back-alley world gives rise to a host of glorious rogues, each swindling the others at every opportunity, and yet each is capable of great empathy under just the right conditions." (starred review)
