Lot is a phenomenal debut, the kind of stories I am always longing to read. I love the urgency, honesty, and vitality of Washington's voice. I love these characters for where they're from, and where they're going, what they know, and what they reveal about trouble and love. * Justin Torres, author of 'We the Animals' *
What a book. This is a generous, powerful, deeply engrossing collection of stories that will crack open your heart then put it back together again. Lot is indelible, and Bryan Washington is an important new talent. * R.O. Kwon, author of 'The Incendiaries' *
Bryan Washington's writing is refreshing - a brilliant display of raw talent with gut punching stories that deliver with a lasting force. This is the literature that I've been waiting for. * Nicole Dennis-Benn, author of 'Here Comes the Sun' *
Lot is the confession of a neighborhood, channeled through a literary prodigy. Bryan Washington doesn't render a world, he actually captures one, grabs it out of reality and holds it up for you to see it sparkle. Unflinching, romantic while refusing to romanticize; this is the debut of a prodigious talent. * Mat Johnson, author of 'Loving Day' and 'Pym' *
Bryan Washington's voice has risen blazingly from Houston and now commands us to pay attention. Lot is as raw, soulful and moving as a story collection can get. It's my favorite fiction debut of the year. * Jami Attenberg, author of 'The Middlesteins' *
Bryan Washington gets Houston down on the page in a way I haven't seen before; the city, in his hands, is revealed in all its strange and righteous glory, a fresh sense of youth that's a pleasure to read. Bryan is a thrilling new voice in American fiction and one to watch. * Amelia Gray, author of 'Isadora' *
In his raw, empathic and wise debut collection, Bryan Washington's gaze works like a surveillance drone dispatched to a frenetic microcosm of America, a hovering intelligence that can take in the whole of a Houston neighborhood but can also descend with great precision upon the perfectly chosen detail. It's that astonishing versatility of his voice - at once achingly intimate and brilliantly panoramic - that makes LOT a vital new entry in the Texas literary canon and also makes Washington one of the most thrilling and promising writers to come along in years. * Stefan Merrill Block, author of 'The Story of Forgetting' *
Lot will affect you the way that cherished and, sometimes, painful memories do, with a quality like haunting, a sense that the encounter you've had is undeniably real and will stay with you for a very long time. What a thrill to inhabit-to live in, to navigate-the stories and people that make up Bryan Washington's powerful debut. * Jamel Brinkley, author of 'A Lucky Man' *
