about

Langston Cane V is 38, divorced and working as a government speechwriter, until he's fired for sabotaging the minister's speech. It seems the perfect time for Langston, the eldest son of a white mother and prominent black father, to embark on a quest to discover his family's past -- and his own sense of self.

Any Known Blood follows five generations of an African-Canadian-American family in a compelling story that slips effortlessly from the slave trade of 19th-century Virginia to the modern, predominantly white suburbs of Oakville, Ontario -- once a final stop on the Underground Railroad.

LAWRENCE HILL is the author of several novels and works of non-fiction, including the nationally bestsellingThe Book of Negroes,Black Berry, Sweet Juice: On Being Black and White in CanadaandSome Great Thing. He also co-authored, with Joshua Key,The Deserter’s Tale: The Story of an Ordinary Soldier Who Walked Away from the War in Iraq....
