Teju Cole talks about his new novel, Every Day Is for the Thief, about a young Nigerian living in New York City who goes home to Lagos for a visit, finding a city both familiar and strange. He taps into the energies of Lagos life—creative, malevolent, ambiguous—and slowly begins to make sense of the profound changes that have taken place in his country and in himself in the 15 years since he moved away.
