Teju Cole's newest book and first collection of essays is coming out today! In Known and Strange Things, Cole writes about everything ranging from religion, literature and Instagram to nature, Boko Haram and Roman architecture. The book is a collection of over 50 essays written in Cole's signature, masterful prose and is filled with his often mind-blowing philosophical meditations. Cole is a truly gifted writer and thinker. His writing is so achingly beautiful. I think he operates on a different plane from us mere mortals. Buy this book! It is receiving rave reviews from every single outlet.
