"Last year's release of Blacktop Wasteland garnered S.A. Cosby plenty of well-deserved accolades for his tough, fast-hitting breakout novel, but, in my humble opinion, Razorblade Tears is even better.

“Explanations were like assholes. Everyone has one and they are all full of shit.”
S.A. Cosby, Blacktop Wasteland

“Listen, when you’re a black man in America you live with the weight of people’s low expectations on your back every day. They can crush you right down to the goddamn ground. Think about it like it’s a race. Everybody else has a head start and you dragging those low expectations behind you. Choices give you freedom from those expectations. Allows you to cut ’em loose. Because that’s what freedom is. Being able to let things go. And nothing is more important than freedom. Nothing. You hear me, boy?” Beauregard said. Javon nodded his head. “Alright”
S.A. Cosby, Blacktop Wasteland

“The secret ain’t about the motor. That’s part of it, yeah, but that ain’t the main thing. The real thing, the thing most people don’t want to talk about, is how you drive. If you drive like you scared, you gonna lose. If you drive like you don’t want to have to rebuild the whole engine, you gonna lose. You gotta drive like don’t nothing else matter except getting to that line. Drive like you fucking stole it.”
S.A. Cosby, Blacktop Wasteland

“El tema, escribió él, es el dolor. Cuánto acumulo, cuánto esquivo.”
Dennis Lehane, Abrázame, oscuridad

“Me di cuenta de que intentaba convencerse a sí mismo, de que trataba de reunir el valor necesario para atravesar esa puerta. Pero aún le faltaba mucho para poder hacerlo. —Es la tensión —le expliqué—. La espera. —¿Qué quieres decir? —A veces parece peor que la simple confrontación. Te parece que si pudieras hacer algo dejarías de sentirte como si trataras de desprenderte de tu propia piel. Asintió. —Pues sí, así es como me siento. —El problema, Phil, es que si Gerry es el tipo que creemos que es, la confrontación va a ser mucho peor que la espera. Nos matará, armados o no. Tragó saliva y asintió.”
