Patricia Highsmith Biography - Further Information
Patricia Highsmith, born 1921 in America, is a writer whose work transcends the traditional boundaries of detective, crime, mystery and suspense novels. She is, of course, best known for her first book and the subsequent film adaptation by Alfred Hitchcock, which is rightly regarded as a masterpiece of suspense. Her other key title is the Talented Mr Ripley, which too has been the base of two film versions. All of the pre 1975 books were first published in America and tend to be of greater value. The English 1st editions are regarded as rarer though. There are a few alternative titles and we have duly noted them, when applicable. There is another book, written under the name Claire Morgan and a couple of non-fiction title, but as they are non-criminous we have omitted them from this bibliography.
