Bryan Washington - Lot: Stories — in conversation with Nicole Chung — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Already a noted nonfiction writer and social commentator, Washington makes his eagerly-awaited fiction debut with a fresh and dynamic portrait of Houston. Narrated by a young man growing up black, Latino, and gay, the novel captures Houston’s rich cultural diversity as well as its grittiness and poverty. Through the protagonist’s eyes we experience the effects of gentrification, watch drug dealers at work, and follow the stories of his siblings and neighbors, who include unfaithful spouses, hurricane survivors, a baseball team, and a Guatemalan teen under the protection of a drug lord. Written with deep compassion, the novel is an unflinching exploration of what it means to be part of a community. Washington will be in conversation with Nicole Chung, author of All You Can Ever Know.
