Teju Cole…[a] beautiful new book of essays…Most of its chapters are travel essays, and Aciman is a spirited guide, sensitive to history but alive also to food, sunshine, art and aimless wandering. The pleasure of reading him resides in the pleasure of his company. He knows a lot, and often gets carried away, but he also knows how to doubt himself. If his destinations seem conventional…his engagement with them is idiosyncratic…Aciman's deep fidelity to the world of the senses, and to the translation of those sensations into prose, makes Alibis a delight.
