Publisher's Summary

One afternoon, not long after Kelly Thorndike has moved back to his hometown of Baltimore, an African American man he doesn't recognize calls out to him. To Kelly's shock, the man identifies himself as Martin, who was one of Kelly's closest friends in high school - and, before his disappearance nearly 20 years before, skinny, white, and Jewish. Martin then tells an astonishing story: he's had a plastic surgeon perform 'racial reassignment surgery.' Now, however, Martin feels he can no longer keep his new identity a secret; he wants Kelly to help him ignite a controversy that will help sell racial reassignment surgery to the world. Kelly, still recovering from the death of his wife and child, agrees, and things quickly begin to spiral out of control.

Is this really the future?

As the review I read said: this book started out as an interesting little story and quickly took off into the bizarre. Imagine a future where you can make yourself look like the person you know yourself to be. What a lively conversation this would be for a book club. T
The writing was amazing. Sometimes I felt that it was above my level. I'm not sure I understood everything that was going on. But I truly enjoyed the book anyway.
The narrator was one of the best. He subtly changed from character to character so that I had no trouble knowing who was speaking. The Amazon review said that the printed book was difficult because the author did not use quotation marks-- so, I guess, this was better as an audio book. But I always feel audio books are better.

I couldn't get into it I tried. I really really tried but it was not fun or interesting or compelling.
