I wrote a book and I think you’d love it. It’ll drop on March 19, 2019 from Riverhead Books.

“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, New York Times bestselling author of The Middlesteins and All Grown Up

“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 and Gutshot
