Publisher's Summary

With this collection of more than 50 pieces on politics, photography, travel, history, and literature, Teju Cole solidifies his place as one of today's most powerful and original voices. Minute after minute, deploying prose dense with beauty and ideas, he finds fresh and potent ways to interpret art, people, and historical moments, taking in subjects from Virginia Woolf, Shakespeare, and W. G. Sebald to Instagram, Barack Obama, and Boko Haram. Persuasive and provocative, erudite yet accessible, Known and Strange Things is an opportunity to live within Teju Cole's wide-ranging enthusiasms, curiosities, and passions and a chance to see the world in surprising and affecting new frames.

    "A Book that Teaches and Shares"

    I really didn't know what to expect when I began; there were times I had to replay chapters in order to squeeze every drop of information and thoughtful critique. I have been introduced to subjects and artists that I am delighted to pursue and furthwr explore
