Lost in the City by Edward P. Jones

1992, HarperCollins

In these short stories set in Washington D.C., the author of The Known World invites the reader to see the uniqueness of his city and people.

Lauded by Newsday for the "Chekhovian patience, respect and reserve," he brings to his characters and their world, Jones is a high-quality writer who speaks to my heart.

I'd be up for watching a series about African-American life based on Lost in the City, as suggested in the above video. What about you?
