'A devastating social parable brimming with humanity and heart...' Marlon James
 
White skin, green eyes, red hair... BLACKASS
 
Furo Wariboko - born and bred in Lagos - wakes up on the morning of his job interview to discover he has turned into a white man. As he hits the city streets running, still reeling from his new-found condition, Furo finds the dead ends of his life open out before him. As a white man in Nigeria, the world is seemingly his oyster - except for one thing: despite his radical transformation, Furo's ass remains robustly black...
 
Funny, fierce, inventive and daringly provocative - this is a very modern satire, with a sting in the tail.
