Description

Azaro is a spirit child. He made a pact with his spirit companions that when he was born he would die at the first opportunity and rejoin them. But after his birth, Azaro broke his pact. His spirit companions have so far sent five spirits to reclaim him, who have failed. Two more are sent and are the most dangerous of all. In one sense Infinite Riches picks up where Songs of Enchantment left off. Azaro's father has been implicated in the murder of a neighbour and Infinite Riches begins with his arrest and imprisonment. At the same time it introduces a new and enlightening aspect to the story of Nigeria. The writing is rich with allegorical illusion and vivid with magical imagery. This is Ben Okri at his inspiring best.show more
