I loved this psychological drama. MC , David Kelsey is seriously stuggling with his grasp on reality. Bizarre, yet written in such a believable way , because it is believable, yet we rarely come upon these characters in real life. Is a deeply traumatised person capable of anything ? Obsession is a real draw for some people. How far they may take it is frightening. Subtle humour too. I‘ll be savouring the P Highsmith‘s books I have left.

An innocent man is sentenced to prison for a crime he didn't commit. After he serves his time, he returns to his family, but he's a changed man. It's a really heavy story, one of Highsmith's best.
Ripley‘s Game by Patricia Highsmith features her most famous and beguiling antihero. Read my review here at John C Adams Reviews:

Epic library haul part two : graphic novels.
This is pretty much a fictionalized version of Patricia Highsmith‘s career shifting from being a comic book writer, a job she hated, to a novelist. It‘s a cool graphic novel, I really like the artwork. I don‘t think I would have liked her as a person though (the intro explains that she had a bunch of prejudices, quite problematic.)
Her kitty‘s name was Spider. How great is that?
