LOT was one of Barack Obama's "Favorite Books of the Year" Praise for Memorial "Wryly funny, gently devastating ... Washington's hand is effortless--smooth dialogue, a love for good food, and his vibrant, sprawling, gradually gentrifying hometown--in inviting you into a nuanced love story that sticks to you like the Texas heat." --Entertainment Weekly

"Memorial is a wonderful unconventional rom-com [and]. . . a radiant exploration of love's permutations." -O, The Oprah Magazine "A fresh, vibrant love story that interweaves race, queerness, nationality, family, and intimacy with narrative ease." --Vogue "Implicit in a book about changing relationships and titled "Memorial" is the question of what is being preserved. The book preserves Houston and Osaka. It preserves the feeling of being young and lost. It preserves the food that gives us comfort and nourishment and purpose." --The New York Times "Profoundly sensitive. . . . [and] unspool[s] as spontaneously and clearly as late-night conversation. . . . Memorial is a testament to the permanence of filial connections, a clear-eyed acknowledgment that our relatives don't always behave nicely, but they're with us for life." --The Washington Post "Washington deftly records the way the forces of loyalty pull the heartstrings in different directions. . . . Memorial leaves us with the sense that our true selves, like our true names, aren't necessarily bestowed at birth. They are chosen, too." --The New York Times Book Review "Extraordinary. . . . Washington writes with ease, like a juggler who is adding in new objects all the time, except the book ends with everything aloft instead of in hand. . . . It can be difficult to share your life with someone; Washington somehow explains this anew. Memorial, on the other hand, is easy to share." --The Paris Review

"Bryan Washington's writing is a treasure. . . . brilliant, funny, true." --Goop "A very different kind of love story. . . . Washington's deeply touching (and deeply funny) look at love, sex, family, grief, and the ways in which we take care of each other is a revelation, a reminder of how powerful a novel can be." --Refinery29 "Dazzling . . . With crackling dialogue and gimlet-eyed humor, Washington paints a vivid, poignant portrait of how love, romantic and familial, is weathered and ultimately deepened by time." --Esquire.
