Under a Dark Angel's Eye: The Selected Stories of Patricia Highsmith

Author(s): Patricia Highsmith; Carmen Maria Machado (Introduction by)

Crime & Thrillers

Disturbing, exhilarating, potent, savagely funny.

Published to celebrate the centenary of one of the twentieth century's most influential writers, this is the most comprehensive collection of Highsmith's short fiction, including two unpublished stories.

"Every story by the unparalleled master Patricia Highsmith shimmers like a dark gem as she turns her gimlet eye on domesticity, suburban madness, toxic families, the loneliness of childhood. Often mordantly funny and always psychologically acute, this collection is not to be missed.

"For eliciting the menace that lurks in familiar surroundings, there's no one like Patricia Highsmith" - Time
