In this novel-in-stories featuring drug dealers, sex workers, mistresses, food service workers, and a chupacabra, Bryan Washington writes a vibrant portrait of a corner of a metropolis at the intersection of diverse worlds and voices. Each story is a winding street and our guide is a young man in the middle of it all as he figures out where he belongs. It's energizing, reaffirming, and joy to read something I could see myself reflected in.— Luis
“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
