Which came first, the image or the word? It’s hard to tell in The Magic Lamp, Ben Okri’s collaboration with painter Rosemary Clunie. Subtitled Dreams of Our Age, it’s a collection of twenty-five enchanting, haunting stories, each accompanied by a dreamlike painting. In this illustrated book, the Man Booker Prize-winner draws once again on the lineage of Arabian Nights and African mythology. This event was recorded live at the 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
