About the Author

Rawi Hage was born in Beirut and lived through nine years of the Lebanese civil war. He is a writer, a visual artist, and a curator, and he resides in Montreal. First published in Canada, De Niro's Game was a finalist for that nation's top literary prizes--the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the Governor General's Literary Award, the Writers' Trust Award, and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize--and won the McAuslan First Book Prize and the Paragraphe Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction.

Reviews

The protagonist of this dreamlike tale is a voracious reader by day and a taxi driver by night. The reader wants to buckle up and join him for the ride.
The things that make Rawi Hage a major literary talent include freshness, gut-wrenching lyricism, boldness, emotional restraint, intellectual depth, historical sense, political subversiveness and uncompromising compassion.
Distinctive and poetic...a tremendous novel--both laugh-out-loud hilarious and full of pathos; deftly constructed, affectionate yet disconcerting, and utterly engaging.--Andrew Marszal
Carnival is a rich and compelling read, a testament to a daring and talented novelist.
