Description

"Furo Wariboko wakes on the morning of a job interview to discover he's turned into a white man: red hair, green eyes, pale skin. In this condition he plunges into the bustle of Lagos to make his fortune. Pursued from the streets to the boardroom by those who would use him, Furo hides the evidence of his former life... as he reinvents himself. In this wicked satire, Furo's search for an identity deeper than his skin leads to the unraveling of his own precariously constructed story"--Page 4 of cover.
