After a failed suicide attempt, a Lebanese war refugee has to undergo therapy. During the therapeutic sessions he must relive the dark experiences of the civil war. The novel »Cockroach« is about exile communities on the fringes of an affluent society, and it shows that while it may be possible to survive a war, the psyche does not escape unscathed.
