By the bestselling author of The Talented Mr Ripley, Carol and Strangers on a Train'By opening this book, you've given Patricia Highsmith permission to follow you, catch you, take you apart.

Get ready to run' CARMEN MARIA MACHADO 'Every story shimmers like a dark gem as Highsmith turns her gimlet eye on domesticity, suburban madness, toxic families and the loneliness of childhood.

Often mordantly funny and always psychologically acute, this collection is not to be missed' MEGAN ABBOTT'The sheer macabre, amoral brilliance of Patricia Highsmith surely makes her one of the finest writers in the English language' RICHARD OSMANINTRODUCED BY CARMEN MARIA MACHADOPatricia Highsmith was one of the great twentieth-century novelists, celebrated for classics The Talented Mr Ripley, Carol and Strangers on a Train, but she was also a masterful and prolific short-story writer.

This definitive new collection, featuring two stories that have never been published before, confirms Highsmith as a genius of the genre.

Peerlessly disturbing, exhilarating and savagely funny, Highsmith's stories still have the power to startle, presenting a world that is frighteningly familiar and as relevant today as when they were written.
