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. Set
against the backdrop of a country struggling to come to terms with
the aftermath of a recent civil war, this is a story of doomed love
- of star-crossed lovers, separated not by their families, but by
the very circumstances of their lives.
