TJJT Book Club: S.A. Cosby

The TJJT Book Club team (Tayari Jones & Johnny Temple) interview S.A. Cosby about Waffle House, whiskey, the future of America, and his latest novel, Razorblade Tears.

A Black father. A white father. Two murdered sons. A quest for vengeance. Provocative and fast-paced, S. A. Cosby’s Razorblade Tears is a story of bloody retribution, heartfelt change – and maybe even redemption. It can be ordered on Bookshop.org.


S. A. Cosby is an Anthony Award-winning writer from Southeastern Virginia. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Razorblade Tears and Blacktop Wasteland, which won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and was a New York Times Notable Book, the Sun Sentinel‘s and BookPage‘s #1 Best Mystery of the year, a Goodreads Choice Awards Semifinalist, and was named a best of the year by NPR, The Guardian, and Library Journal, among others. When not writing, he is an avid hiker and chess player.
