Okri, a highly acclaimed novelist, short-story writer and poet, is often described as one of Africa’s greatest writers. His best-known work, The Famished Road, was awarded the Booker Prize in 1991. Set in a Nigerian village, this is the first in a trilogy of novels, which tell the story of Azaro, a spirit child. Azaro's narrative is continued in Songs of Enchantment (1993) and Infinite Riches (1998). In Tales of Freedom (2009), Okri brings together poetry and story.
