PATRICIA HIGHSMITH: SELECTED NOVELS AND SHORT STORIES

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bronson Pinchot, Cassandra Campbell

Mystery & Suspense • 26.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Mystery writer Patricia Highsmith was known by her fans for her understated yet disturbing prose. In this collection of selected stories and novels, which excludes her most well-known work, THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, the listener is led down Highsmith's garden path to encounter wondrously pretty plots flowering as poisonous flytraps. Cassandra Campbell ably disguises what's coming with affable interpretations of character, while Bronson Pinchot subtly steers each turn of discovery. THE PRICE OF SALT is read by Campbell, and STRANGERS ON A TRAIN by Pinchot. They split the shorter stories between them, such as the evocative "A Mighty Nice Man." Both narrators succeed in playing Highsmith's elegant game, making even the lesser-known stories a masterful garden of delights. J.L.
