Over the years, the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London has hosted innumerable public interviews with prominent writers, often arranged to coincide with the publication of a new book and sometimes to take advantage of a foreign author's visit to England. Frequently the interviewer has also been a well known literary personality. Here Edward Blishen interviews Nigerian writer Ben Okri on the occasion of the publication of his new collection of short stories, "Stars of the new curfew". Okri is asked about one of the dominant themes of his work, namely the question of innocence and corruption, and discusses a variety of other topics, including socialist realism in the African novel, the impact of the civil war on Nigerian literature, the importance of a nation facing its nightmares, the role of the second generation of Nigerian writers, the energy of life in Lagos as source material and the use of language in novels as compared to short stories
