Staff Reviews

Let it be said that I am a native Houstonian, and I love this collection. "Lot: Stories" is a coming-of-age story of the young son of a black mother and a Latino father, growing up in Houston, Texas. "Lot" displays a side of Houston that most folks don't know of when they think of the southern metropolis. Washington paints a city of intersecting cultures, emerging sexual and racial identity, with a forward, rich cast of characters. From a Houstonian's perspective, I describe the world of "Lot" as real, and Washington's character is a real Houstonian.

“Bryan Washington has crafted a debut that illuminates how community can shape and shelter the self. Lot explores identity, queerness, and the racial divide with such emotional resonance that you will finish the book feeling deeply connected to the characters and to the city of Houston.”
— Cristina Rodriguez, Deep Vellum Books, Dallas, TX


Bryan Washington�s brilliant, viscerally drawn portrait of life in Houston�s neighborhoods vibrates with energy, wit, and soulful insight into what makes a community, a family, and a life.
