A young man decides to visit Nigeria after years of absence. Ahead lies the difficult journey back to the family house and all its memories; meetings with childhood friends and above all, facing up to the paradox of Nigeria, whose present is as burdened by the past as it is facing a new future.Along the way, our narrator encounters life in Lagos. He is captivated by a woman reading on a danfo; attempts to check his email are frustrated by Yahoo boys; he is charmingly duped buying fuel. He admires the grace of an aunty, bereaved by armed robbers and is inspired by the new malls and cultural venues. The question is: should he stay or should he leave?But before the story can even begin, he has to queue for his visa.Every Day is for the Thief is a striking portrait of Nigeria in change. Through a series of cinematic portraits of everyday life in Lagos, Teju Cole provides a fresh approach to the returnee experience. 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.

Through a series of cinematic portraits of everyday life in Lagos, Teju Cole provides a fresh approach to the returnee experience. 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 a Buch (fremdspr.)
