From Booker Prize-winner Ben Okri: a deceptively simple modern fable with an ancient origin.

A young man finds himself living among invisible beings who have built a utopia based on one principle: that we must repeat or suffer every experience until we experience it properly and fully for the first time.

‘The hero of this novel finds what he did not seek, and goes where he did not intend to go. As I did in writing it.’ BEN OKRI.
