Review:

‘An incredible talent ... You could swear she’s writing fact wrapped up in very sly fiction’ -- San Francisco Chronicle

‘Dark and savage humour ... precise and hard-edged prose’ -- Newsday

‘Highsmith is a novelist whose books one can re-read many times. There are few of whom one can say that’ -- Graham Greene

‘These stories leave us haunted with afterimages that will tremble - but stay in our minds’ -- The New Yorker

About the Author:

Patricia Highsmith was born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1921. Her first novel, Strangers On A Train, was made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1951. The Talented Mr Ripley, published in 1955, was awarded the Edgar Allan Poe Scroll by the Mystery Writers of America and introduced the fascinating anti-hero Tom Ripley, who was to appear in many of her later crime novels. Patricia Highsmith died in Locarno, Switzerland, in February 1995. Her last novel, Small g: A Summer Idyll, was published posthumously just over a month later.
