(1959– ) was born in Nigeria and came to England as a small child, where he attended school until his parents went back to Nigeria just as the Nigerian Civil War began. He returned to London in 1978 and studied at Essex University with a grant from the Nigerian government, but when funding ran out shortly afterward, he became homeless. He soon published his first two novels, Flowers and Shadows (1980) and The Landscapes Within (1981), and then his first story collections, Incidents at the Shrine (1986) and Stars of the New Curfew (1986). His third novel, The Famished Road (1991), won the Booker Prize and quickly achieved the status of a contemporary classic. The Famished Road tells the story of Azaro, a spirit child, whose tale continues with Songs of Enchantment (1993) and Infinite Riches (1998). “What the Tapster Saw” appeared in Stars of the New Curfew and shows the influence of Amos Tutuola on Okri’s work, an influence present in the unbridled mingling of myth and reality, dream and waking, death and life.
