Dangerous Loveby Ben Okri

From the Booker Prize-winner Ben Okri: a classic love story set in a country trying to come to terms with its past.

An epic of daily life, DANGEROUS LOVE is a story of doomed love, of star-crossed lovers, separated not by their families, but by the very circumstances of their lives.

'I hope among my novels this one achieves something I have long sought.' 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 awards over the years, including the Booker Prize for 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'.

'Had me enchanted from the first page to the last.' Sunday Telegraph

'Poetic writing of a very high order. Tender, nightmarish, wise and soulful.' Daily Telegraph
