Teju Cole (Author)


IN STOCK$17.00

In this powerful novel, we follow Julius, a young Nigerian psychiatrist completing his residency as he wanders the streets of New York City. Julius reflects on his relationships, recent break-up with his ex-girlfriend, his present, and past. Through Cole's beautiful and skilled prose, the reader crosses social territories, varied identities, and confronts history. The novel builds to a twist that the Atlantic aptly describes as "a psychological hand grenade."
