"When I try to describe Canada to non-Canadians, one of the first things to come up is the incredible ethnic diversity that we get to enjoy here. Canada is a proud nation of immigrants. I think that Cockroach should be read by Canadians because it's a dark portrait of what that experience can feel like. It's an amazingly written book. It's comedic and it's dark and it's very interesting. It's a book about what it feels like to be other, what it feels like to be invisible or alien. I think anything that gives you the opportunity to draw back the curtain on what it feels like to be invisible is valuable."
