“In A. Igoni Barrett’s novel, the main character, 33-year-old Lagosian Furo Wariboko, wakes up one ordinary morning and … is white. Later in the novel we meet a writer named Igoni who changes into a woman. But these transformations are not straightforward ones. Despite his white skin, green eyes and red hair, Furo’s eponymous ass remains ‘robustly black’; despite her big boobs and womanly curves, Igoni, now known as Morpheus, still retains his/her penis.”
