Reviews

"A collection that conveys an urgent message about humans' 'suicidal relationship with the earth.'...An artist's ardent plea for change." --Kirkus Reviews

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
