    The remarkable renaissance of Patricia Highsmith continues with the publication of Patricia Highsmith: Selected Novels and Short Stories, featuring two groundbreaking novels as well as a trove of penetrating short stories. With a critical introduction by Joan Schenkar, situating Highsmith’s classic works within her own tumultuous life, this book provides a useful guide to some of her most dazzlingly seductive writing.

    "Highsmith: Her Name Reflects Her Craft"
    Overall

    I learned much about her private life and pathological relationship with her mother. While she was strange in her personal life, that same quality exists in her writing which also demonstrates her intelligence, her focus on resourceful/unique characters, settings, and creative and unique plots which usually hinge on at least one amoral or sociopathic character. She follows with meticulous logic from beginning to the end of the story and her writing is fairly literary and compelling to read.

    Seymour "Swede" Levov is a prosperous, hard-working family man who comes of age in America's triumphant postwar era. But when the country begins to run amok in the 1960s, Swede's perfect world crumbles.

    Thomas says: "A Masterpiece"
    "American Pastoral"
    Overall

    Philip Roth crafts the best sentence of any American novelist. This masterpiece unfolds a plot which continues to unfold and the characterization of the "Swede" and his family is fascinating. There are great details about glovemaking, about the decline of some of the towns in NJ, about marriage and parenthood, even grandparenthood. The story is dynamic and suspenseful.
