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.

    " Let me say, first of all, that I didn't finish this book. This is a collection of short stories set in Washington, D.C., which is what drew me to the book in the beginning (I live in the suburbs and like to play in D.C.) The writing is very good, however, every story left me wanting more. I think each one could have been the start of a great novel. Obviously, I get frustrated with the short story format so it's best I stick to novels when reading fiction. I have read his novel, The Known World, which was fantastic. This guy is insanely talented so if you love short stories, I highly recommend Lost in the City. "

    " Among my favorite short story collections. Creates its own world, unlike any other, in the social history of Washington, DC for its overwhelming majority of African American residents. Jones' best (and better than his novel, The Known World). "

    " Many wonderful stories in this short story collection. I picked this book up after being so impressed by the author's novel The Unknown World (which I also highly recommend). I was not disappointed. Though many of the stories are dark, the writing is terrific. All stories occur in Washington DC; most of the characters have difficult lives and find themselves in difficult circumstances. A number of them are unforgettable. Good read for sure. "
