A dizzying ride through the mind of Patricia Highsmith, the author of Strangers On A Train. Or was it? A blend of fact and fiction, it‘s difficult to know which are the facts and which fiction, so in that the author has succeeded. Not my favourite book this month but still intriguing. #Pop19 #NovelBasedOnATrueStory #ReadingWomensChallenge #HistoricalFictionBook

#BookMail Pt2 This one was another recommendation from @SavidgeReads booktube channel. It‘s a fact based fiction about a period in author Patricia Highsmiths life where she retreated to a cottage in Suffolk under the guise of concentrating on her writing but she also has another motive-a married lover. Enter Ginny, a journalist there for an interview and things take a dark turn.

I‘m visiting my parents today and went with my dad to the community recycling for the free book table. Here‘s a picture of the table. The next post will have my haul!

#YourBestAmericanGirl #NoFemmeber
I think Patricia Highsmith has to be the best of American writers, Ripley is of course the greatest villain and i loved Carol. Here are my next two PH bks waiting to be read, my gr rating of carol, and the title bk is one i read recently. And don't forget strangers in a train
A prolific writer and when the psychological thriller is being hailed as the new genre it makes you want to shout read Patricia Highsmith

Leftcoastzen She is amazing! Glad to see someone singing her praises! 10mo

I‘m just starting the fifth (and final) Ripley novel.

I like the back cover blurb by Newsday: “Tom Ripley is as appalling a protagonist as any mystery writer has ever created.” 😆

Centique Brilliant 😂😂 13mo
vivastory I need to read these. I love Everyman's Library editions, but the font size kills my eyes 13mo
saresmoore @vivastory Me, too! 13mo
LeahBergen @vivastory @saresmoore The font size isn‘t too bad in this volume and several others that I have. Some of the big whopping classics on the other hand? Yikes! 😬 (edited) 13mo

Had to share this here.

Samplergal Hysterical! Working in elementary schools much of my career, I remember one school where a random grandmother came in from off the street. She saw the sign and came in and eventually bought $75 of books for her grands. She was disappointed she couldn‘t get adult books! #booklover 1y

Those Who Walk Away | Patricia Highsmith
Pickpick

Certainly an interesting story, although perhaps a teeny bit implausible (how many times does this guy have to try killing his son-in-law anyway?). Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading a story set in Venice. It harkened back nicely to Don't Look Now.
