No lover of American literature should be without this stunning boxed set of all five Ripley novels.

The Complete Ripley Novels-a first-time, boxed collection of the entire Ripley series-is a cause for critical and popular celebration. Its publication reflects the fact that Patricia Highsmith, "no more a practitioner of the murder mystery genre ... than are Dostoevsky, Faulkner and Camus" (Joan Smith, Los Angeles Times), has finally entered the American literary canon. Marginalized throughout her career as a mere thriller writer, Highsmith has experienced a remarkable renaissance since her death in 1995. Now Highsmith fans and new readers alike can find these five novels-The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ripley Under Ground, Ripley''s Game, The Boy Who Followed Ripley, and Ripley Under Water-all housed under one roof in this brilliantly designed, highly collectible edition.
