This morning, CBC Books revealed the trailer for The Illegal, the new novel by bestselling author Lawrence Hill. Fast moving and compelling, The Illegal casts a satirical eye on people who have turned their backs on undocumented refugees struggling to survive in a nation that does not want them.
It’s been a busy year for Lawrence, whose novel The Book of Negroes was adapted into a television mini-series on CBC and BET last February. If you missed it, don’t worry! The series will re-air in September alongside the release of The Illegal on September 8th.
