"You feel you are turning the pages of history, the pages of truth."—Austin Clarke, author of The Polished Hoe

The Barnes & Noble Review

The remarkable thing about Lawrence Hill's fourth novel, Someone Knows My Name, the life story of an African Muslim girl sold into slavery, isn't her physical survival. Sure, that's wrenchingly rendered and gives the story its heart. But it's the girl's emotional survival, her constant and ferocious fight for humanity that gives the book its considerable soul.
