I've spent the past two weeks devouring Patricia Highsmith's Ripley novels. BB has been trying to persuade me for years that I would like them and I resisted. And, true to form, I was wrong to delay and then felt compelled to catch up on a wildly unrealistic time frame.
I've enjoyed them so much that the next book on my agenda is Beautiful Shadow: A Life of Patricia Highsmith.
I need to know more about the woman who created Ripley. (I'm a bit alarmed by how much I enjoy him and his morally bereft wife, Heloise. Their sociopathic tendencies don't bother me a bit.)
