Every Day is for the Thief

Автор: Teju Cole

Короткое описание книги

A young man decides to visit Nigeria after years of absence.

Ahead lies the difficult journey back to the family house and all its memories; meetings with childhood friends and above all, facing up to the paradox of Nigeria, whose present is as burdened by the past as it is facing a new future.

Along the way, our narrator encounters life in Lagos.

He is captivated by a woman reading on a danfo; attempts to check his email are frustrated by Yahoo boys; he is charmingly duped buying fuel.

He admires the grace of an aunty, bereaved by armed robbers and is inspired by the new malls and cultural venues.

The question is: should he stay or should he leave?But before the story can even begin, he has to queue for his visa.


Every Day is for the Thiefis a striking portrait of Nigeria in change.

Through a series of cinematic portraits of everyday life in Lagos, Teju Cole provides a fresh approach to the returnee experience.
