US author S.A. Cosby’s stunning crime novel Blacktop Wasteland holds up a cracked mirror to the woozy ideals of the American dream – a dazzling, operatic story of a man pushed to his limits by poverty, race and a scarred, self-destructive masculinity. Cosby’s brand of Southern Noir combines the pace of a high-octane thriller with fully fleshed-out characters and a deep understanding of place. With reviews of the book drawing comparisons to Elmore Leonard and Walter Mosley, Cosby is a talent to watch.
