Rawi Hage

Hage, Rawi

Rawi Hage is a Lebanese-Canadian writer and visual artist whose work has appeared in magazines and been shown in galleries and museums worldwide. His award-winning debut novel about lifelong friends in war-torn Beirut, De Niro’s Game, allowed him to trade in his cab-driving job to become a full-time writer. His second and third novels, Cockroach and Carnival, earned him the Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction. Born in Beirut, Hage grew up in Lebanon and Cyprus, and currently lives in Montreal. Brought to you in cooperation with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Canadian Embassy in Beijing.
