Teju Cole talks to Max Liu, LRB

August 30, 2013 @ 7:00 pm

On a rare visit to London, New York-Lagos writer Teju Cole will be at the bookshop to talk about his work. His novel Open City, the narrative of a young Nigerian-German psychiatrist as he walks around New York and, briefly, Brussels, has received unalloyed praise, won the PEN/Hemingway award and was shortlisted for the Ondaatje prize and the National Book Critics Circle award. James Wood has called it “Beautiful, subtle, and finally, original… ”, and Colm Tóibín wrote of it, “The soft, exquisite rhythms of its prose, the display of sensibility, the lucid intelligence, make it a novel to savour and treasure.”

The event will be chaired by writer and journalist Max Liu.
