Blackass

£8.99

Furo Wariboko – born and bred in Lagos – wakes up on the morning of a job interview to discover he has turned into a white man. The city transforms beneath his feet as 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.

Description

‘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.
