About this audiobook

How to Hold a Cockroach is about discovering and freeing ourselves from the beliefs that cause us to suffer. With a message both surprising and simple, it is a love letter to humankind, a book for those who are free and don't know it.

An Inspirational Tale

A struggling boy begins a life-changing journey when a disgusting guest disturbs his dinner. As he continues to encounter sources of suffering, the boy must investigate fundamental truths he has believed about himself, love, and life. He confronts some of life’s most persistent questions: What am I? What causes me to suffer? How can I be at peace with the traumas of the past and the uncertainty of the future? What determines how I experience life?

Described as “a children's book for adults,” How to Hold a Cockroach was written for adults but is suitable for thoughtful teenagers and children. 

An Immersive Experience

This audio version enlivens the story with original music and sound design by producer and songwriter Mason Maxwell and the captivating voice of award-winning narrator Simon Vance.
