In ArcadiaBen Okri

From Booker Prize-winner Ben Okri: a voyage into the enduring myth of Arcadia and the mysterious painting it inspired.

A lyrical novel about art and enlightenment that takes the reader from Waterloo Station in London to Paris and a four hundred year old enigma, the painting by Nicolas Poussin known as 'Et in Arcadia Ego'.

'We never write the book we think we are writing. We never read the book we think we are reading' BEN OKRI.

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 prizes over the years for his 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'.

'Profound and enchanting.' The Times

'The journey has inspired writers from Homer and Chaucer onwards. Ben Okri gives it an ultra modern twist.' Daily Mail

'Delightfully lyrical. A truly fascinating work and a hugely ambitious one.' Scotland on Sunday
