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.

Tamra I think I may have only read one of her novels - obviously I need to check out more! 5mo
squirrelbrain You‘re loving this author, aren‘t you?! 5mo
Cathythoughts @Tamra it‘s fairly crazy stuff .. but I love it 😬. I‘m not a big fan of the who done it. I love the why done its. 5mo

Cathythoughts @squirrelbrain I love her ! Perfect read for me. 5mo
Tamra @Cathythoughts ahhhh yes, key distinction! 5mo
Bookwomble Mrs Bookwomble has this from the '80s, which I've been meaning to read since then! Your review might be the push I need to get to it this year (maybe 😏). 5mo
LeahBergen You‘re making me want to move this up to the top of my TBR pile! 👍 5mo
batsy Great review, Cathy. Love a good writer who delves deep into the whydunnit. I really need to be reading more Highsmith! 5mo
Cathythoughts @Bookwomble I know the feeling ! R 5mo
Cathythoughts @Bookwomble I know the feeling ! Too many good books out there. But , I‘ll give you a push alright 😄.. it‘s very good. 👍🏻 5mo
Cathythoughts @LeahBergen I‘ll be excited to hear your thoughts whenever you may get there. Nice to see you ♥️ 5mo
Cathythoughts @batsy It‘s a good one. Apparently it‘s her early ‘work ‘ for Ridley. I wish I liked the who done it‘s more … but I don‘t … that could change though 🤞🏻 there are so many recommended ones on Litsy. 5mo

#Alphabetgame #LetterG @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

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.

erzascarletbookgasm Oh I have this on my tbr. Good to know. 6mo
eeclayton @erzascarletbookgasm I hope you'll like it! 6mo

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?
Venkman approved.

repost for @Soubhiville

It‘s May, time to pull out our Patricia Highsmith books for #AuthorAMonth. What are you reading?

#AuthorAMonth is a no-pressure, no-commitment Litsy challenge. The goal is to celebrate the works of a particular author each month. Authors were chosen through polls by Litsy participants. Read as many as you like, skip months when needed, it's entirely up to you!

There will be some prizes sent at the end of the year.

Well obviously I loved this one since it took me 3 sittings and about 2 days to finish haha.
I could definitely see similarities to The Talented Mr Ripley, which I also loved! Highsmith really has a way of showing you the twisted workings of a twisted mind.
