The New Yorker: Out Loud

Teju Cole’s Favorite Things

Monday, January 05, 2015

The writer and photographer Teju Cole recently wrote in the magazine about his favorite movie, Krzysztof Kieślowski’s “Red.” On this week's Out Loud podcast, he joins Michael Agger, the culture editor of newyorker.com, to talk about the film and the music, poetry, and art that he revisits over and over again. “For me, the great ideal is a work that stands up to repetition,” he says. “You can have two works that have similar impact on first encounter, but only one of them can contain sustained scrutiny.” Cole also discusses how listening to music changes a person’s experience of a city, his recent trip to the Deep South to explore civil-rights history, and why he finds Switzerland to be an “endlessly fascinating” country.
