about

David Kelsey, a young scientist, has an unyielding conviction that life will turn out all right for him; he just has to fix the Situation: he is in love with a married woman. Obsessed with Annabelle and the life he has imagined for them—including the fully furnished cabin he maintains for her—David prepares to win her over, whatever it takes. In this riveting tale of a deluded loner, Highsmith reveals her uncanny ability to draw out the secret obsessions that overwhelm the human heart.
Patricia Highsmith (1921–1995) was the author of more than twenty novels, including Strangers on a Train, The Price of Salt, The Blunderer and The Talented Mr. Ripley, as well as numerous short stories.

Editorial Reviews

Patricia Highsmith's novels are peerlessly disturbing…bad dreams that keep us thrashing for the rest of the night. — The New Yorker

Terrific book, very wry humor, and a great unreliable narrator. — Sarah Hilary, author of Come and Find Me
