White skin, green eyes, red hair black ass.
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 streets of Lagos running, Furo finds the dead ends of his life open out wondrously before him. The world, it seems, is his oyster except for one thing: despite his radical transformation, his ass remains robustly black...
Funny, fierce, inventive and daringly provocative this is a very modern satire, with a sting in the tail.
"A brilliant Kafka-esque satire with a sting in the tail from one of the finest writers around'"
