I keep fearing that Patricia Highsmith's going to fall of the pedestal I put her on, but it hasn't happened yet. To the contrary, this again turned out to be one of the best of hers that I've read. Which also means one of the best books I've ever read in general, because I really agree with the blurb by one Auberon Waugh from Harpers & Queen: "One thinks of comparing Miss Highsmith only with herself; by any other standard of comparison, one must simply cheer."

There are a couple of scenes that keep going through my head. The one where Ed cries about Lisa, for instance, the one where Kenneth loses consciousness, and the very last one. Fantastic multiple point of view.
