the last book I ever read (Lost in the City: Stories by Edward P. Jones, excerpt ten)

from Lost in the City: Stories by Edward P. Jones:

They had lived, this woman and the father of Mildred’s four children, in a small house on Maple View in Anacostia, where Mildred had forced her son to take her. “I live in Northeast, Mama. I don’t know one thing about Anacostia.” “Buy a map. Get a map. I want to see where they live, where him and her live together.” “You just actin crazy.” “Do what I say.”
