Teju Cole, writer, art historian, photographer and photography critic of The New York Times Magazine, is the author of the novella Every Day is for the Thief, named a book of the year by The New York Times. Of his novel Open CityTime Magazine said, “A powerful and unnerving inquiry into the human soul. Cole has earned flattering comparisons to literary heavyweights like J.M. Coetzee, W.G. Sebald and Henry James, but Open City merits higher praise: it’s a profoundly original work, intellectually stimulating and possessing of a style both engaging and seductive.”
