Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Booker-Prize winner Ben Okri blends the African oral storytelling tradition with Magical Realism in this mesmerizing collection of short stories.
      Incidents at the Shrine  is the first collection of stories by the author of 1991 Booker Prize-winning novel,  The Famished Road.  Whether the subject is a child's eye view of the Nigerian Civil War, Lagos and the spirit world or dispossession in a decaying British inner city, Okri's lyrical, poetic and humorous prose recreates the known and the unknown world with startling power.

Originally published: Heinemann, 1986.
