The Famished Road is undoubtedly Ben Okri’s most famous work. In this BBC World Service broadcast Okri reads from his Booker-winning novel and discusses the passages with the World Book Club presenter, Harriet Gilbert. The unmistakeable baritone lilt in Okri’s readings has even more power when dislocated and broadcast on the radio.
See Okri live at Africa Writes 2015, 4 July. Book tickets here.
