White skin, green eyes, red hair... 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.
"It is the funniest, most engaging badass book I.ve read in years. You should read this book and enjoy freshly minted scintillating prose rioting with each other . it is a lush canvas of ideas, humor and vision. Blackass is fresh, contemporary writing without even trying; this is how fiction should be written in the 21st century." (Whats On Africa, Royal African Society)
