A Discussion on Starbook and Inspiration

When asked to shed light on the opening of Starbook, Ben Okri gives a typically whimsical response, “Artists, composers, when they work magic it’s because they make connections with that mysterious book among the stars. You could call it inspiration if you want to be very materialistic about it but I’d rather keep it on the poetic plane.” Ben Okri is in conversation at Africa Writes, 3rd-5th July 2015.
