A modern fable with an ancient origin, about one man's search for visibility on an enchanted island.
Selected as one of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'.
From Booker Prize winner Ben Okri, a deceptively simple modern fable with an ancient origin.
A young man finds himself living among invisible beings who have built a utopia based on one principle: that we must repeat or suffer every experience until we experience it properly and fully for the first time.
