One of Barack Obama’s “Favorite Books of the Year”
Bryan Washington's brilliant, viscerally drawn world vibrates with energy, wit, raw power, and the infinite longing of people searching for home. With soulful insight into what makes a community, a family, and a life, Lot explores trust and love in all its unsparing and unsteady forms.
Get Lot: Stories by Bryan Washington and other short story books online and at Fully Booked bookstore branches in the Philippines.
