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'"
(Guardian)
