This is what you must be like. Grow wherever life puts you down. 

Ben Okri

Happy 56th birthday, Ben Okri! The Nigerian writer spent his early childhood in London, then moved back to Lagos right before the Nigerian Civil War broke out. His experiences as a child in wartime influenced work like The Famished Road, which won the Booker Prize in 1991.

All My Best,
Jill M Roberts
