Teju Cole’s Open City: Selected Readings

We decided that it was impossible for everyone to read Cole’s novel in its entirety, however much we may have wanted to, and so Steve has ploughed on and highlighted the following passages for us to read for our session:

  • pp. 4-5 re: radio announcers
  • page 7 from “at first” to “sleep arrive”
  • pp. 46/7 two consecutive paragraphs from top of page 46

Page numbers refer to the Faber paperback edition. More to follow…

Remember too that we’re reading Taiye Selassi’s very short piece, ‘What is an Afropolitan?’, alongside Cole’s novel.
