The narrator, Azaro, is an abiku, a spirit child, who in the Yoruba tradition of Nigeria exists between life and death. He is born into a world of poverty, ignorance and injustice, but Azaro awakens with a smile on his face. Nearly called back to the land of the dead, he is resurrected. But in their efforts to save their child, Azaro’s loving parents are made destitute. The tension between the land of the living, with its violence and political struggles, and the temptations of the carefree kingdom of the spirits propels this latter-day Lazarus’s story. Despite belonging to a spirit world made of enchantment, where there is no suffering, Azaro chooses to stay in the land of the Living: to feel it, endure it, know it and love it. This is his story.

‘In a magnificent feat of sustained imaginative writing, Okri spins a tale that is epic and intimate at the same time. The Famished Road rekindled my sense of wonder. It made me, at age 50, look at the world through the wide eyes of a child’ Michael Palin

  1. akshat gupta (Verified Purchase)

    The writing and langauge is excellent, not too sure about the theme though, have not finished reading the book yet.

  2. Komatireddy SaikrishnaReddy (Verified Purchase)

    Listed as very good condition. Mine was better than very good. I would say it’s in Like New condition.

  3. Amar Nath (Verified Purchase)

    A beautifully written story, dreamlike and surrealistic, with a dark, punchy realism at the centre.

  4. Palash Bambodkar (Verified Purchase)

    This has opened my mind to a different space out there, so much though put into it, well appreciated. Thank you Ben Okri

  5. ajinkya jain (Verified Purchase)

    I loved this book for its sheer sense of imagination, and the emotional tangibility attached to every detail. It’s not the best book I have read, but it’s very remarkable and unique indeed. I re-read several accounts because they were written so beautifully.
