in corruption, Nigerias claim to fame is that it is the most religious country in the world and its people the happiest This novella, a revised version of the first book written by Nigerian Cole, author of the acclaimed Open City 2011 , is a scathing but loving look at his native land in measured, polished prose Michele LeberA luminous rumination on storytelling and place, exile and return extraordinary San Francisco Chronicle Teju Cole is following in a long tradition of writerly walkers who, in the tradition of Baudelaire, make their way through urban spaces on foot and take their time doing so Like Alfred Kazin, Joseph Mitchell, J M Coetzee, and W G Sebald with whom he is often compared , Cole adds to the literature in his own zeitgeisty fashion The Boston GlobeCrisp, affecting Cole constructs a narrative of fragments, a series of episodes that he allows to resonate The New York Times Book Review Hugely rewarding Every Day Is for the Thief is both a celebration of one of the worlds most vibrant cities and a lament over what can be one of the most frustrating and difficult places to live It is also a story of family breakup and an uneasy homecomingthe narrator has been away for fifteen years and must relearn how to navigate a place that was once home.NPR Every Day Is for the Thief has a restraint that allows Teju Cole to slip in these exquisitely rendered

Cole novel is a reading experience matched by few contemporary writers Flavorwire Every Day Is for the Thief, by turns funny, mournful, and acerbic, offers a portrait of Nigeria in which anger, perhaps the most natural response to the often lamentable state of affairs there, is somehow muted and deflected by the authors deep engagement with the country a profoundly disenchanted love Teju Cole is among the most gifted writers of his generation.Salman Rushdie A tightly focused but still marvelously capacious little novel built with cool originality The house of literature Cole is busy creating is an in between space with fluid dimensions, resisting entrenchment The Christian Science Monitor Every Day Is for the Thief holds something for people with all levels of familiarity with
