Any Known Blood

HarperPerennial | October 7, 2011 | 552 pages

Langston Cane V is 38, divorced and working as a government speechwriter, until heâe(tm)s fired for sabotaging the ministerâe(tm)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 familyâe(tm)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. Elegant and sensuous, wry and witty, it is an engrossing tale about one manâe(tm)s attempt to find himself through unearthing and giving voice to those who came before him.
