Product description


'Okri is incapable of writing a boring sentence' Independent on Sunday.

'Part narrative, part philosophy, part allegory ... this novel offers the reader not just a story, but a series of intriguing and revelations on the mysterious and blurring of the lines between life and death, illusion and reality, and good and evil' Daily Mail.

'A dreamlike modern fairytale ... Strange and poetic' The Times.

'Like the best fairy tales it has lines of smoothly lyrical beauty. You have to applaud Okri for it. To get a novel that's not a novel, that so blithely eschews the structural conventions of the novel, from a Booker-winning novelist is fresh and revitalising' Irish Times.

'As you'd expect from Okri, the emphasis is very much on the magical, beautifully written' Mail on Sunday.

'Okri's tale of eight filmmakers at a lakeside hotel feels like a philosophical enquiry, in which the cast of characters operate as mouthpieces, there to speculate on the notion of Arcadia' Sunday Herald.

'A sort of philosophical meditation on the idea of paradise. Okri's otherworldly literary approach has produced masterpieces' Independent on Sunday.

About the Author

Ben Okri was born in Minna, Nigeria. His childhood was divided between Nigeria, where he saw first hand the consequences of war, and London. He has won many prizes over the years for his fiction, and is also an acclaimed essayist, playwright, and poet.
