Reviews
Praise for Ben Okri:

"[Okri's] writing takes on the great riddles of existence--freedom and consciousness, truth and illusion, suffering and transcendence--spinning them into shimmering, allegorical texts...at a time of deep reckoning and crisis...his work feel[s] all the more prescient." --New York Times

"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

"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
