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


Also: Lot is an ABA Indie Bookseller’s Spring 2019 Pick.
