Product Description


"Her best novel." --"The New Yorker""Larger, funnier, and more thematically ambitious than any of Highsmith's other novels."--Francine Prose"Highsmith is the poet of apprehension rather than fear. ... Highsmith's finest novel to my mind is "The Tremor of Forgery", and if I were asked what it is about I would reply, 'apprehension.'" --Graham Greene"Highsmith has produced work as serious in its implications and as subtle in its approach as anything being done in the novel today." --Julian Symons"Whereas we read Stephen King or Ruth Rendell to relish the thrills that come from carefully controlled verbal terror, Highsmith is not to be taken so lightly. She conveys a firm, unshakable belief in the existence of evil--personal, psychological, and political."--"Boston Phoenix" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
