Author of the #1 best-seller The Book of Negroes, Lawrence Hill is a writer of immense talent—and his literary reputation grows with each new work. Canadian Langston Cane V finds his writing career (and, indeed, his life) in stasis until inspired by his mentor to write about an ancestor who purportedly died fighting alongside John Brown at Harpers Ferry. Traveling to Baltimore, the latter-day Cane delves into history and in so doing awakens to new possibilities.

“A remarkable achievement.”—Joyce Carol Oates
This book was captivating with non stop humor. I enjoyed every moment and each character. This should be a Broadway show, it would be a hit. I wished that it would never end. I feel in love with each Langston Cane and Mill. Thank you Lawrence Hill, for your wonderful voice and passion for life through legacy.
