Tiger work

£12.99

This earth that we love is in grave danger because of us. Forests are becoming legends, rare as unicorns. If we continue to live as we do now, Okri argues in this evocative collection, there will be no world left for us to fix. He imagines messages, sent to us from beyond the end, from those who saw it coming – from Africa, Europe, the Americas and the rest of the world – exhorting us to change, now. Inspired by environmental activism, Ben Okri makes a powerful and very personal appeal for change. Combining fiction, essay, and poetry, ‘Tiger Work’ displays Okri’s classic blend of storytelling, fantasy, and magic.
