“In photography and in writing, I want to give people the same sort of feeling which is that there is somebody else out there who is noticing the small things of life.” —Teju Cole

The author Teju Cole’s debut novel Open City won the 2012 Pen/Hemingway Award and was called “beautiful, subtle —and original….” by The New Yorker. He visited The Leonard Lopate Show Monday. Here is the latest installment of The Leonard Lopate Show Book Club.
