The Freedom Artist: Ben Okri asks 'Who is the prisoner?'

Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri tells us about his latest novel, "The Freedom Artist," a world where people are largely asleep, unable or unwilling to think for themselves. Books have disappeared. People are in prisons. The novel offers some frighteningly contemporary commentary on life today designed to "upwake" the reader. "If you are in the prison of your body. Who is the prisoner?" he writes. Okri joined us for Perspective.
