Finally Renewed My Library Card

And managed to snag the one copy in the entire library system of Teju Cole’s debut Open City, which I’m extremely excited to read after reading Claire Messud’s excellent review in the New York Review of Books. I’m really interested to compare it to Michael Thomas’s Man Gone Down (which won the IMPAC/Dublin Prize two years ago and was an excellent and gripping read). There are some superficial similarities, but I’m curious to see how they contrast.
