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 is amazed to find the dead ends of his life wondrously open out before him.

As a white man in Nigeria, the world is seemingly his oyster – except for one thing: despite his radical transformation, his back  side remains robustly black...

Funny, fierce, inventive and daringly provocative – this book by A. Igoni Barrett is a very modern satire, with a sting in the tail.

"A writer who has succeeded in making colloquial literature without seeking spurious attention by vulgar daring. Here is a reader's entry to hearing on the page how cotemporary communication, not only in Nigeria, can be inventive" - Nadine Gordimer

"Blackass is a perfect introduction to the different screaming slices of one of the world's most dynamic cities - Lagos. Igoni has [...] given us a bittersweet dark comedy that will be remembered." - Binyavanga Wainaina
