Winner of theHemingway Foundation/PEN Award for a distinguished first book of fiction
Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award

"Reminiscent of the works of W.G. Sebald, this dreamy, incantatory debut was the most beautiful novel I read this year the kind of book that remains on your nightstand long after you finish so that you can continue dipping in occasionally as a nighttime consolation." Ruth Franklin, The New Republic
"A psychological hand grenade." Alexis Madrigal, The Atlantic, Best Books I Read This Year
A meditative and startlingly clear-eyed first novel. Newsweek/Daily Beast Writers Favorite Books 2011
"This year, literary discovery came, for me, in the form of Teju Cole s debut novel, Open City, a deceptively meandering first-person narrative about a Nigerian psychiatry resident in New York. The bonhomous flaneur who strolls Manhattan from top to bottom, reveals, in the course of his walking meditations, both more about the city and about himself than we or indeed he could possibly anticipate. Cole writes beautifully; his protagonist is unique; and his novel, utterly thrilling." Clare Messud in the Globe and Mail
On the surface, the story of a young, foreign psychiatry resident in post-9/11 New York City who searches for the soul of the city by losing himself in extended strolls around teeming Manhattan. But it's really a story about a lost nation struggling to regain a sense of direction after that shattering, disorienting day 10 years ago. A quiet, lyrical and profound piece of writing. Seattle Times, 32 of the Year s Best Books
[Open City is] lean and mean and bristles with intelligence. The multi-culti characters and streets of New York are sharply observed and feel just right Toward the end, there s a poignant, unexpected scene in a tailor s shop that s an absolute knockout. Jessica Hagedorn, author of Toxicology in Salon.com Writers choose their favorite books of 2011
I couldn't stop reading Teju Cole's debut novel and was blown away by his ability to capture the human psyche with such beautiful yet subtle prose. Slate.com, Best Books of 2011
An unusual accomplishment, Open City is a precise and poetic meditation on love, race, identity, friendship, memory, dislocation and Manhattan bird life. The Economist, 2011 Books of the Year
The most interesting new writer I encountered this year. Books and Culture, Favorite Books of 2011
"A Sebaldesque wander through New York." The Guardian, Best Books of the Year

An indelible debut novel. Does precisely what literature should do: it brings together thoughts and beliefs, and blurs borders A compassionate and masterly work. The New York Times Book Review
The cool, concise prose of Open City draws you in more quietly, then breaks your heart. Who knew that taking a long walk in Manhattan could be so profound? Jessica Hagedorn, author of Toxicology in New York Magazine
[Teju Cole] has a phenomenal voice prodigious talent, beautiful language. WNYC s The Takeaway
Beautiful, subtle, and finally, original What moves the prose forward is the prose the desire to write, to defeat solitude by writing. Cole has made his novel as close to a diary as a novel can get, with room for reflection, autobiography, stasis, and repetition. This is extremely difficult, and many accomplished novelists would botch it, since a sure hand is needed to make the writer s careful stitching look like a thread merely being followed for its own sake. Mysteriously, wonderfully, Cole does not botch it. James Wood, The New Yorker
Nothing escapes Julius, the narrator of Teju Cole s excellent debut novel In Cole s intelligent, finely observed portrait, Julius drifts through cities on three continents, repeatedly drawn into conversation with solitary souls like him: people struggling with the emotional rift of having multiple homelands but no home. -- GQ
A complicated portrait of a narrator whose silences speak as loudly as his words all articulated in an effortlessly elegant prose Teju Cole has achieved, in this book, a rare balance. He captures life s urgent banality, and he captures, too, the ways in which the greater subjects glimmer darkly in the interstices. The New York Review of Books
The most thoughtful and provocative debut I ve read in a long time. The best first novel of 2011. The Daily Beast
In another novel the city would serve as a mere setting. Cole, though, all but foists it on us in case we might be tempted to narrow our view or even look away. -- New York Daily News
Masterful. Kirkus (starred review)
Intelligent and panoramic engaged with the world in a rare and refreshing way. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
One of the most intriguing novels you ll likely read the alienated but sophisticated viewpoint is oddly poignant and compelling reads like Camus s L etranger. Library Journal
Unique and pensive. -- Booklist

Open City is a meditation on history and culture, identity and solitude. The soft, exquisite rhythms of its prose, the display of sensibility, the lucid intelligence, make it a novel to savor and treasure.
Colm Toibin, author of The Master and Brooklyn
The pages of Open City unfold with the tempo of a profound, contemplative walk through layers of histories and their posthumous excavations. The juxtaposition of encounters, seen through the eyes of a knowing flaneur, surface and then dissolve like a palimpsest composed, outside of time, by a brilliant master.
Rawi Hage, author of De Niro s Game, winner of the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award
A gorgeous, crystalline, and cumulative investigation of memory, identity, and erasure. It gathers its power inexorably, page by page, and ultimately reveals itself as nothing less than a searing tour de force. Teju Cole might just be a W. G. Sebald for the twenty-first century.
Anthony Doerr, author of The Shell Collector

"If Baudelaire was a young African, wandering the streets of contemporary New York, this is the book he d write. A melancholy, beautiful meditation on modern urban life, it has echoes of W.G. Sebald and Walter Benjamin and reveals Teju Cole as one of a talented new generation of global writers, at home in the world. -- Hari Kunzru

A reader feels the density of [Julius s] mind but also the fragility of his identity. Los Angeles Times
Magnificent the trip is as meaningful as the destination. Open City is a remarkably resonant feat of prose. The Seattle Times
A quiet novel that somehow manages to scream. The Boston Globe
Quietly powerful. O: The Oprah Magazine

My favourite novel of the year, dreamlike and meandering, like the best of W G Sebald. Alain de Botton, The New Statesman
[A] remarkable and highly accomplished first novel. . . . exquisitely composed. . . .I have read it twice, and I still cannot pin it down to a theme or a type. At once symbolical and precise, part fiction, part reportage or memoir, it is beyond category. Jan Morris, The Independent

A New York Times Notable Book - One of the ten top novels of the year --Time and NPR

A haunting novel about identity, dislocation, and history, Teju Cole's Open City is a profound work by an important new author who has much to say about our country and our world.
Along the streets of Manhattan, a young Nigerian doctor named Julius wanders, reflecting on his relationships, his recent breakup with his girlfriend, his present, his past. He encounters people from different cultures and classes who will provide insight on his journey--which takes him to Brussels, to the Nigeria of his youth, and into the most unrecognizable facets of his own soul.
