Actress, director, producer and activist Kerry Washington offers an intimate look into her life in her first-ever memoir, Thicker Than Water.

One of the most shocking revelations in Washington's memoir is how she learned a major family secret. At the age of 41, Washington found out that she was conceived via sperm donor after offering to take a DNA test for her appearance on the PBS series Finding Your Roots. For the full story and more insight on Washington's life, order Thicker than Water on Amazon here.

"If Kerry Washington's superpower in acting is that she can make the viewer feel intimate with someone we've never known, her writing superpower is that she can make us relive a life we've never lived," said #1 New York Times bestselling author Trevor Noah in a review. "Utterly immersive, beautifully descriptive, and radically honest, this book takes a compassionate sledgehammer to the facades that so many of us create about ourselves and our families. It's such a gift."
