Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In the City of Houston -- a sprawling diverse microcosm of America -- the son of a black mother and a Latino father is coming of age.  He works at his family's restaurant, weathers his brother's blows, resents his older sister's absence -- and discovers he likes boys.  Around him, others live and thrive and die in houston's neighborhoods:  a young woman whose affair detonates across an apartment complex, a ragtag baseball team, young hustlers, hurricane survivors, a drug dealer who takes a Guatemalan teen under his wing, a reluctant chupacabra.  washington's brilliant, viscerally drawn world vibrates with energy, wit, and the infinite longing of people searching for home.
