Starbook: A Magical Tale of Love and Regeneration
New in paperback, the first novel from Booker Prize winning author Ben Okri in 5 years. Starbook tells the tale of a prince and a maiden in a mythical land where a golden age is ending. Their fragile story considers the important questions we all face, exploring creativity, wisdom, suffering and transcendence in a time when imagination still ruled the world. A magnificent achievement and a modern-day parable, Starbook offers a vision of life far greater than ourselves.
