Strangers on a Train, transformed into a legendary film by Alfred Hitchcock, displays Highsmiths genius for psychological characterization and tortuous suspense, while the Price of Salt with its lesbian lovers and a creepy PI, provides a thrilling and highly controversial depiction of "the love that dare not speak it's name"

The Hightower Reader firmly establishes Highsmiths centrality to American culture by presenting key works that influenced a half century of literature and film. Abandoned by the wider reading public in her lifetime Highsmith finally gets the canonical recognition that is her due.
