Review:

"[A] literary and social visionary" -- Ali Smith "These are beautiful stories but they bite" New Statesman "Ben Okri...seems to have the two great gifts that are required to make a man a teller of tales: first, faultless artistic economy, which shows in his razor-sharp prose; second, an ability to place himself, chameleon-like in any milieu of society, from the highest to the lowest... Mr. Okri, in short, knows his business" Evening Standard

Book Description:

Booker-Prize winner Ben Okri blends the African oral storytelling tradition with Magical Realism in this mesmerizing collection of short stories.
