You Might Hate This Book

Nov 28 2022 • 57 mins

This week, Hannah and Stephanie discuss a book that Stephanie loves, Razorblade Tears by S.A. Cosby. Will Hannah hate it as much as Stephanie fears?

Two grief-stricken fathers from different worlds–a low-income white man and a black ex-con–seek revenge for their sons’ murders. In their quest for revenge, they also seek their own redemption, having never accepted their sons’ marriage while they were alive. This week Hannah and Stephanie discuss everything from genre, pacing, and bad similes to the tensions surrounding race, the LGBTQ community, and southern identity that are captured in this book.

Book Content Warning: This book contains graphic violence and language, including racial and homophobic slurs, that could be unwelcome or triggering to some readers.
