Description
The author of Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr Ripley, Patricia Highsmith (1921–95) was renowned as a suspense writer during her lifetime—although she was notoriously evasive about the sources of her fiction—yet she left behind a vast archive of diaries, notebooks, and letters, extraordinary in their candor, that detail the links between her life and work. Originally published in 2003, Andrew Wilson's "fascinating, beautifully balanced and meticulously researched biography" (Sunday Telegraph, London) illuminates the dark corners of Highsmith's life and the mysteries of her creative process, including the real-life women who inspired the subject of her novel Carol.

"An exemplary biography of a tortured, difficult and outstandingly gifted human being.... Wilson has fashioned a biography that does complete justice to her uneasy spirit."—Sunday Times (London)
