Book:Wild:2012 Book
Author: Okri, Ben
Year: 2012
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Poetry
Publisher: Rider
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Ben Okri is a prolific Booker-Prize winning novelist and essayist, but has published only two collections of poetry. Okri's new volume, 'Wild', is very much suited to this fragile era of change that we are living through today. A period when the delicacy of nature around us is commensurate with the forms and images inside us.
96 p. ; 21 cm (hbk)
