Ben Okri - The Glasshouse

‘The temperature of the world has become really uncomfortable,’ says Ben Okri when asked about the motivations behind new novel The Freedom Artist. ‘Books are born often because of a deep passion for something […] but they are also born because the times – the age – is right for it.’

The Man Booker Prize-winning author joins Beth AQ to discuss the basic but powerful questions we should never stop asking and why the state of the world demands a closer look at the concept of freedom.
