An interesting collection of bizarre short tales from a skilled yet tortured writer in her later years, better-known as the author of The Talented Mr Ripley. Every one of these stories follows poor judgement, misunderstanding, mixed with a heavy dollop of stupidity - and gleefully describes the disastrous outcome. Clever satires, they lurk on the edge of our tenuous reality, making us wonder if any of these tales could actually take place. There is little by way of dialogue, but that doesn't seem to matter; the imagery is subtle, yet memorable, and the stories grip you by the throat in an enticing, almost sinister manner.Written over 20 years ago, many of the political and cultural references are still very relevant today. And for those of you scared of long books, this one is short and sweet, and won't take long to finish. It was a captivating, enjoyable read. This is the first book I've read by Patricia Highsmith, and it won't be my last.
