Publisher Marketing: From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Famished Road, a classic story of doomed love in a country trying to come to terms with its violent past.

An epic of daily life, Dangerous Love is one of Ben Okri's most accessible and most disarming novels.
Omovo is an office worker and artist who lives at home with his father and his father's second wife. In the communal world of the compound in which he lives, Omovo has both friends and enemies, but his most important relationship is with Ifeyiwa, a beautiful young married woman whom he loves with an almost hopeless passion--not because she doesn't return his love, but because they can never be together.
Against the backdrop of Nigeria's civil war, Ben Okri creates an atmosphere where passion takes on a wholly different dimension as danger, greed, hunger, and betrayal loom at every turn.
