Publisher's Summary

Edward P. Jones is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the critically acclaimed novel The Known World.

A finalist for the National Book Award, Lost in the City features 15 poignant short stories, each set in Washington, D.C. Far removed from marble monuments and the offices of rich politicians, the nation's capital that Jones captures is inhabited by self-willed African-Americans struggling to live their lives as best they can.

    Story
    "CHAOS AND MORAL IDIOCY"

    Extremely well written. Entertaining. Sometimes funny. Overall impression: let me out of here; I don't belong here; I went to Sunday School and college and my folks never even got a parking ticket! Why would I want to read about low-lifes buying a house for momma with drug money! Or married people who cheat on one another in the most destructive way. Or a Social Security office that calls the old lady back repeatedly and makes her wait for hours! You had me, Mr. Jones, and you lost me but good. I'm really sorry.

    Story
    "FORCED myself to finish these stoies"

    It was disturbing to hear a series of dark stories of low-life vulgar characters, with few redeeming qualities. I kept hoping to eventually find a story of hope, love, bravery, chivalry..something uplifting. The 1st story of the girl with the pigeons had promise, but soon turned dark also. Not my kind if reading.
