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.
