Jonathan Ball Publishers has revealed the cover for The Freedom Artist, the new novel by Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri!
‘Okri’s latest novel is a penetrating examination of how freedom is threatened in a post-truth society. Weaving together myth and dystopia, he has crafted a powerful call to arms to defend our liberty,’ the book’s UK publisher Head of Zeus told The Bookseller. ‘The Freedom Artist is an impassioned plea for freedom and justice. It is angry, political, intriguing and significant.’
Okri added: ‘This is a novel I have been wanting to write for a long time, a fist of light against a wall of darkness.’
The Freedom Artist will be released in South Africa in March 2019.
