A Time for New Dreams (Paperback)Ben Okri (author)
- In stock
'A single line,' writes Ben Okri, 'can lead the mind to terraces of contemplation. Naturally it depends on the line and the view.'
This is a collection of exquisitely crafted essays on themes as diverse as childhood and creativity, beauty, censorship, art and politics. They are responses to the world and the times we live in. They ask unsettling questions. They provoke thoughts and they make us dream.
'Profound and enchanting' The Times.
'There can be no mistaking Okri's passion and intelligence. A powerful piece of work' Sunday Telegraph.

'[Okri] has a diction which glides superbly. His ear is pitch perfect' * Scotsman *
