Any Known Blood

ebook

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.
