Reviews

"In this new adaptation...the ancient story of the warrior king Sinuhe is brought to intriguing new life." --The Telegraph

"Fascinating...Fans of Egyptian history, short stories, and plays and those with deep philosophical questions will enjoy this text. Often triggering thoughtful retrospection and occasionally offering surprising splashes of humor, Okri's play is recommended for readers who have questioned their place in the world." --Library Journal

Praise for Ben Okri:

"Okri is a master in knowing what is better left unsaid...each word chosen is vital." --Los Angeles Review of Books

"Ben Okri is that rare thing, a literary and social visionary, a writer for whom all three--literature, culture, and vision--are profoundly interwoven." --Ali Smith

"Fiction's master of enchantments stares down a real horror, and without blinking or flinching, produces a work of beauty, grace, and uncommon power." --Marlon James

"I love the mythical, fablelike quality of his stories. There is something very comforting and ancient about them." --Alan Cumming
