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.Über den Autor:
