Lot: Stories (Large Print / Library Binding)
A writer who will become a luminary in the world of North American letters, Bryan Washington takes subject matter often overlooked in literature to deliver a sad, funny, and, ultimately, deeply memorable debut collection of short stories. Each story taking place in Washington's hometown of Houston, the author invites us into the lives of people facing bleak circumstances without neglecting the entire range of their humanity. Written in style that is distant without minimalizing the emotional turmoil of his characters, Washington has gifted us with a magnificent short story collection that will forever have a space on my bookshelf.— Malik
