Cole has earned flat­ter­ing com­par­isons to lit­er­ary heavy­weights like J.M. Coetzee, W.G. Se­bald and Henry James, but Open City mer­its higher praise: it’s a pro­foundly orig­i­nal work, in­tel­lec­tu­ally stim­u­lat­ing and pos­sess­ing of a style both en­gag­ing and se­duc­tive.” Teju Cole has con­trib­uted to The New York Times, The New Yorker, the Fi­nan­cial Times, Aper­ture, The At­lantic, Granta and sev­eral other pub­li­ca­tions. His pho­tog­ra­phy has been ex­hib­ited in In­dia and the US, pub­lished in a num­ber of jour­nals, and will be the sub­ject of a solo ex­hi­bi­tion in Italy. Born in the US in 1975 to Nige­rian par­ents, and raised in Nige­ria, Cole cur­rently lives in Brook­lyn. A re­cip­i­ent of the PEN/Hem­ing­way Award and the 2015 Wind­ham Camp­bell Prize for Fic­tion, Teju Cole is the Dis­tin­guished Writer in Res­i­dence at Bard Col­lege.
