About the Author

As a writer of novels, short stories, and teleplays, Highsmith is known for her character studies exploring people's darker side---the side of an apparently moral person who is capable of murder. Highsmith likes to examine the ways in which people can get to the point at which they are capable of murder, as well as who they become after they have committed a crime. In carefully constructed stories and novels, she integrates this scrutiny of the human psyche into complex plots that often take unexpected twists. An example is her first novel, Strangers on a Train (1950), in which architect Guy Haines meets Charles Bruno on a train. Bruno conceives a plan to have Haines kill Bruno's father, while Bruno will kill Haines's wife. The effect that this plan has on Haines is the focus of the story. Highsmith does not publish a great amount of fiction, but when she does, her work is always among the best in the genre.
