A novel by Man Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri about life in the time immediately before the arrival of the Atlantic slave trade, which restores a lost history to the author's Nigerian homeland.

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 awards over the years, including the Booker Prize for Fiction, and is also an acclaimed essayist, playwright, and poet. In 2019 Astonishing the Gods was named as one of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'.


A magical take on Africa before the arrival of the Atlantic slave ships - a world of art and artists, lovers, storytellers and philosophers... The beauty of Okri's prose is [...] the overwhelming star of the show * Independent *
Told with a bracing sincerity... and gnomic wisdom expressed in supple but sturdy prose * Daily Telegraph *
PRAISE FOR BEN OKRI: 'Where 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, on The Freedom Artist. '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
