Day 13 – Your Favourite Writer

Patricia Highsmith


How do I pick? Why don’t you just ask me to name my favourite limb?

But in keeping with my love for crime fiction, I decided to go with the reigning leader in suspense and crime fiction, and a woman to boot.

I have read two of her books so far, ‘The Talent Mr Ripley’ and ‘Deep Water’ the cat-and-mouse games that the criminal and the authority play with each other. But I especially love the way that she makes us root for the main character even though it’s clear they’re on the wrong side of the law; I’ve read a few reviews and this seems to be her trademark writing style.

I impulsively purchased two of her books at a second hand store in Melbourne and I’m practically salivating at the thought of digesting them.
