Sunday Quote: In his incredibly precise and beautiful novel, OPEN CITY, Teju Cole gives these words to an otherwise incidental character: "You have to set yourself a challenge, and you must find a way to meet it exactly, whether it is a parachute, or a dive from a cliff, or sitting still for an hour, and you must accomplish it in a beautiful way, of course."
The richness--the joy--of this book is seeing how the narrative meets its own challenge, line by line. The first reading is mysterious and haunting; the second takes your literary breath away--as if you've been granted perfect clarity on a troubling dream. God only knows what a third reading will do.
