Rawi Hage’s first novel, De Niro’s Game, won the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and his follow up work, Cockroach, was the winner of the Paragraphe Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction. Both novels were shortlisted for every major Canadian literary prize, including the Rogers Trust Fiction Prize, the Scotiabank Giller Prize and the Governor General’s Award for fiction. With Beirut Hellfire Society, he makes a stunning and mature return to war torn Beirut of the 1970s, during the Civil War.
