✨ What was the last book you read that had a lot of shock factor?
β €
The more I read the more I like to think nothing else can surprise me. That is until I read Lot: Stories by Bryan Washington. I listened to the audiobook over the weekend and got the replay a lot out of sheer disbelief. Needless to say, after I finished I was extremely curious about the author’s next book!
β €
Today, I’m spotlighting my book mail of…
β €
πŸ“š Memorial: A Novel
Book by Bryan Washington
β €
Synopsis:
Benson and Mike are two young guys who live together in Houston. Mike is a Japanese American chef at a Mexican restaurant and Benson’s a Black day care teacher, and they’ve been together for a few years — good years — but now they’re not sure why they’re still a couple. There’s the sex, sure, and the meals Mike cooks for Benson, and, well, they love each other.
β €
But when Mike finds out his estranged father is dying in Osaka just as his acerbic Japanese mother, Mitsuko, arrives in Texas for a visit, Mike picks up and flies across the world to say goodbye. In Japan he undergoes an extraordinary transformation, discovering the truth about his family and his past. Back home, Mitsuko and Benson are stuck living together as unconventional roommates, an absurd domestic situation that ends up meaning more to each of them than they ever could have predicted. Without Mike’s immediate pull, Benson begins to push outwards, realizing he might just know what he wants out of life and have the goods to get it.
β €
Both men will change in ways that will either make them stronger together, or fracture everything they’ve ever known. And just maybe they’ll all be okay in the end.
β €
✨ I plan to start this one soon!
β €
Expected Publication: 27 October 2020
