Every Day is for the Thief

Every Day is for the Thief

2,500

Teju Cole (Author)

A young man returns to Nigeria after fifteen years in New York. The country of his childhood has changed: it has found fast-food restaurants, email cafes, contempt for authority and the all-consuming draw of ‘money for nothing’. From the consulate back in Manhattan to the dusty streets of Lagos, life runs like clockwork — as long as you can pay the fee: a bribe for the visa clerk; a ‘Christmas gift’ at immigration. Petrol pumps overcharge and internet cafes overflow with scammers. Every Day is for the Thief is a candid tale of political and spiritual corruption, and a moving account of what it means to go home.
