9780393080131: Patricia Highsmith: Selected Novels and Short Stories

"Patricia Highsmith's novels are peerlessly disturbing . . . bad dreams that keep us thrashing for the rest of the night."―The New Yorker

The remarkable renaissance of Patricia Highsmith continues with the publication of Patricia Highsmith: Selected Novels and Short Stories, featuring two groundbreaking novels as well as a trove of penetrating short stories. With a critical introduction by Joan Schenkar, situating Highsmith's classic works within her own tumultuous life, this book provides a useful guide to some of her most dazzlingly seductive writing. Strangers on a Train (1950), transformed into a legendary film by Alfred Hitchcock, displays Highsmith's genius for psychological characterization and tortuous suspense, while The Price of Salt (1952), with its lesbian lovers and a creepy PI, provides a thrilling and highly controversial depiction of "the love that dare not speak its name." Patricia Highsmith: Selected Novels and Short Stories firmly establishes Highsmith's centrality to American culture by presenting key works that went on to influence a half-century of literature and film. Abandoned by the wider reading public in her lifetime, Highsmith finally gets the canonical recognition that is her due.

From AudioFile:

Mystery writer Patricia Highsmith was known by her fans for her understated yet disturbing prose. In this collection of selected stories and novels, which excludes her most well-known work, THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, the listener is led down Highsmith's garden path to encounter wondrously pretty plots flowering as poisonous flytraps. Cassandra Campbell ably disguises what's coming with affable interpretations of character, while Bronson Pinchot subtly steers each turn of discovery. THE PRICE OF SALT is read by Campbell, and STRANGERS ON A TRAIN by Pinchot. They split the shorter stories between them, such as the evocative "A Mighty Nice Man." Both narrators succeed in playing Highsmith's elegant game, making even the lesser-known stories a masterful garden of delights. J.L.
