Selected as one of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'. From Booker Prize winner Ben Okri, a deceptively simple modern fable with an ancient origin. A young man finds himself living among invisible beings who have built a utopia based on one principle: that we must repeat or suffer every experience until we experience it properly and fully for the first time.'A modern day classic' Evening Standard'Beautiful. A new creation myth' Daily Telegraph'Amazing. I think this is as close as you can get to reliving the experience of a bedtime story' Guardian
