The Talented Miss Highsmith: "I'm not sure I like how the set up of the book was structured. Instead of following Highsmith's life chronologically, the author bounces around back and forth between old age, young adulthood, childhood, professional life and private affairs. It results in a redundant read, but even so, with Highsmith as the subject matter, I stayed curiously invested in her life story."
The Price of Salt: "Highsmith so perfectly captures the ACHE of being in love with someone. I was sucked in by that feeling, and reminded of my first heartbreak at 14. She must have been a walking wound to make art like this."
Edith's Diary: "Highsmith makes her so practical. And yet there is a subconscious build toward madness. It's so good. So damned good. I really hope some of you give these books a go." [More]
