Electronic musician isKwé recommends that your next bedtime book be The Famished Road by Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri.

"It's a book about a young boy who sort of left the spirit world to walk on earth and be a part of earth-dwellers and chose not to leave and go back to the spirit world when he was called back...I think what interests me or what makes me love it so much is the fantasy of it all, the fantasy of this child who spends his time fighting off the urges to return to the spirit world, which is where is comfort is, his real family is, but he decided to stay with  these humans that are now his family. Everyday he's seeing spirits and ghosts from other realms and it's just a beautiful fantasy, it's a beautiful story. It's the perfect bedtime read."
