Description

Contains extra content -- insights, interviews and more!

Langston Cane V is thirty-eight, divorced and childless, and has just been fired for sabotaging a government official’s speech. The eldest son of a white mother and prominent black father, Langston feels more acutely than ever the burden of his illustrious family name. After a run-in with his father in Oakville, Langston takes off for Baltimore, where he embarks on a remarkable quest to uncover his family’s past—and his own sense of self.

At once elegant and sensuous, wry and witty, Any Known Blood 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. Rich in historical detail, Any Known Blood is an engrossing tale about one man’s attempt to find himself through unearthing and giving voice to those who came before him.

Editorial Reviews

Illuminates 150 years of little-known black experience on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border. At the same time, Hill’s characters remain deeply realized creations that exert a strong imaginative pull.

— Maclean's

Hill takes his place among a growing number of writers in this country who have an important story to tell, and the ability to dignify it with writing that is both spellbinding and rewarding.

— Montreal Gazette

Sparkling, witty dialogue is one of the chief reasons this [book] . . . is so pleasurable a read. . . . Deliciously erotic scenes celebrate the passion and playfulness of emotionally intimate bonds.

— The Globe and Mail
