Memorial

BRYAN WASHINGTON

(RIVERHEAD BOOKS, OCTOBER 27)

Narrated in alternating sections by Mike and Benson, a mixed-race couple living in Houston’s Third Ward, Washington’s first.) The story picks up soon after the two men have a fight; Mike flies to Osaka to visit his dying father, leaving Benson to manage his own father’s worsening alcoholism. Like Washington’s acclaimed 2019 debut collection of Houston-set short stories, brims with subtle moments that reveal its characters’ humanity and passion.
