Publisher's Synopsis

'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.
