Ben Okri

Ben Okri, the booker prize winning author, was one of the panelists at the Oxford Lit Fest last weekend. And that’s what he autographed for me. Me like..:-)

Funny thing was, he wanted the book. Apparently, he had never seen this edition of his own book. Think it was bought in South Africa, and as far as  I know is as genuine as any copy. Oh well. I couldn’t just give it away after it had been autographed by a booker winner, could I ?

Interestingly, he “twittered” a poem recently. (via Guardian)
