Description - The Famished Road by Ben Okri
WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 1991
So long as we are alive, so long as we feel, so long as we love, everything in us is an energy we can use.
He is born into a world of poverty, ignorance and injustice, but Azaro awakens with a smile on his face. Despite belonging to a spirit world made of enchantment, where there is no suffering, Azaro chooses to stay in the land of the Living: to feel it, endure it, know it and love it. This is his story.
