Every Day is for the Thief. Jeder Tag gehört dem Dieb, englische Ausgabe - Paperback

2014, ISBN: 9780571307920

[ED: Taschenbuch / Paperback], [PU: Faber & Faber, London], Ein junger Mann kehrt nach einigen Jahren in Amerika heim nach Lagos in Nigeria, an den Ort seiner Kindheit, den er vor vielen Jahren verlassen hat. Er kommt bei Verwandten unter, trifft alte Freunde, lässt sich durch die Straßen treiben. Lagos ist anstrengend und korrupt, Verheißung und Zumutung in einem, voller Geschichten von spiritueller Größe und Verkommenheit. Jede Nacht ist ein vergeblicher Versuch, Ruhe zu finden. Und jeder Tag ein Spiegel, in dem er sich selbst immer klarer sieht. Soll er bleiben oder fliehen? In Teju Coles leuchtenden Sätzen, in denen eine große, gebrochene Liebe zum Ausdruck kommt, entsteht das poetische Porträt eines bedrückten Landes und der größten Metropole in Afrika. A young man returns to Nigeria after fifteen years in New York. Like him, the country of his childhood has grown up quickly: found fast-food restaurants, email cafes, contempt for authority the all-consuming draw of 'money for nothing'. From the consulate in Manhattan to the dusty streets of Lagos, life in modern Nigeria runs like clockwork - as long as you pay the fee. A bribe for the visa clerk, a 'Christmas gift' at immigration, cash - no receipt - at the unofficial tollbooth. Petrol pumps are rigged to overcharge and internet cafes overflow with career scammers ('Dear friend...'), but the police are too busy doling out bogus fines to care. In a country routinely plundered of its oil and ancient treasures, who is to say who can thieve and who can't? As our narrator makes the difficult journey back to his family house and its memories, he is confronted by the paradox of a country he wants to love, as burdened by its impoverished past as it is blinded by the spoils of the future. Every Day is for the Thief - now published for the first time outside Nigeria - is a candid tale of political and spiritual corruption, and a moving account of what it means to go home., [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, H: 214mm, B: 134mm, T: 14mm, [GW: 205g]
