In Ben Okri’s most significant novel since the Booker prize-winning The Famished Road, delivers a powerful and haunting call to arms. 

In a world uncomfortably like our own, a young woman called Amalantis is arrested for asking a question. Her question is this: Who is the prisoner? 

When Amalantis disappears, her lover Karnak goes looking for her. He searches desperately at first, then with a growing realisation. To find Amalantis, he must first understand the meaning of her question. 

The Freedom Artist is an impassioned plea for justice and a penetrating examination of how freedom is threatened in a post-truth society.
