THE CRIME WRITER
Patricia Highsmith’s work has been enjoying a renaissance with the film Carol, based on her novel The Price of Salt. Many of her other books have been adapted into films, including Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr Ripley. Jill Dawson’s, The Crime Writer, is an ingenious blend of fact and fiction, delving into Highsmith’s mind whilst being a thriller in its own right. “Beautifully written and a must for all Highsmith fans” (Phyllis Nagy, Carol scriptwriter and friend of Highsmith). In conversation with Donna Coonan and Lennie Goodings, Editorial Director and Publisher of Virago.
