Teju Cole Signing Copies of Every Day Is for the Thief

Every Day Is for the Thief: Fiction

Thursday, April 3, 7:30 PM

Greenlight Bookstore

686 Fulton Street 
(at South Portland)
 Brooklyn, NY 11217| (718) 246-0200

Teju Cole’s novel Open City was one of the most celebrated books of 2011 (winner of the Pen/Hemingway Prize and named one of the best books of the year by more than 20 publications) – and his reading at Greenlight was one of the highlights of the bookstore’s life. Now, following that success and Cole’s widely popular “Small Fates” project on Twitter (tweets about daily life in Lagos, Nigeria), Teju Cole offers Every Day Is for the Thief, a novel of a Nigerian writer living in New York City who returns to his native Lagos in search of a subject – and himself.  First published in Nigeria in 2007, the novel has been expanded and revised with new photographs by Cole.  The author discusses his work at Greenlight with his American editor, David Ebershoff.

Undisputed Truth by Mike Tyson

Undisputed Truth

A bare-knuckled, tell-all memoir from Mike Tyson, the onetime heavyweight champion of the world—and a legend both in and out of the ring.

Philosopher, Broadway headliner, fighter, felon—Mike Tyson has defied stereotypes, expectations, and a lot of conventional wisdom during his three decades in the public eye. Bullied as a boy in the toughest, poorest neighborhood in Brooklyn, Tyson grew up to become one of the most thrilling and ferocious boxers of all time—and the youngest heavyweight champion ever. But his brilliance in the ring was often compromised by reckless behavior.

Years of hard partying, violent fights, and criminal proceedings took their toll: by 2003, Tyson had hit rock bottom, a convicted felon, completely broke, the punch line to a thousand bad late-night jokes. Yet he fought his way back; the man who once admitted being addicted “to everything” regained his success, his dignity, and the love of his family. With a triumphant one-man stage show, his unforgettable performances in the Hangover films, and his newfound happiness and stability as a father and husband, Tyson’s story is an inspiring American original.

Brutally honest, raw, and often hilarious, Tyson chronicles his tumultuous highs and lows in the same sincere, straightforward manner we have come to expect from this legendary athlete. A singular journey from Brooklyn’s ghettos to worldwide fame to notoriety, and, finally, to a tranquil wisdom, Undisputed Truth is not only a great sports memoir but an autobiography for the ages.

Soul Train: The Music, Dance, and Style of a Generation by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson

Soul Train: The Music, Dance, and Style of a Generation

With its smooth, soulful tunes and groovy dance moves, Soul Train launched the careers of countless African American artists and set lasting trends in music, dance, and fashion for more than three decades. To create this unparalleled tribute to the show, Questlove, the brilliant frontman for the Roots, has pored through more than 1,100 episodes of the show and been given exclusive access to its archives to present hundreds of never-before-seen photographs and the riveting, unfiltered story of how Don Cornelius revolutionized black entertainment.

In this incredible volume, Questlove takes you on a journey from the show’s conception and first episode in 1971 to Don’s final episode as host in 1993. You will learn how all-star performers such as Ike and Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Whitney Houston, David Bowie, Aretha Franklin, LL Cool J, Lenny Kravitz, the Beastie Boys, and Mariah Carey, to name a few, got their start, and get an up-close look at the show’s most memorable dancers, and the moves and fashion they popularized.

 

Soul Train was the longest-running syndicated program in television history. It was beloved by generations of youth, like Questlove, who eagerly awaited every episode, and young music lovers are still discovering it today. It’s taken more than forty years for the awesome legacy of Soul Train to be celebrated in a proper way, and this book does just that.
