Patricia Highsmith was one of the great twentieth-century novelists, celebrated for classics The Talented Mr Ripley, Carol and Strangers on a Train, but she was also a masterful and prolific short-story writer.
This definitive new collection, featuring two stories that have never been published before, confirms Highsmith as a genius of the genre. Peerlessly disturbing, exhilarating and savagely funny, Highsmith’s stories still have the power to startle, presenting a world that is frighteningly familiar and as relevant today as when they were written.
*Includes two newly discovered stories*
This is the only volume of Highsmith’s stories to select from a lifetime of short-story writing.
