Barrett, A. Igoni
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.
