Patricia Highsmith

Patricia Highsmith was a novelist born on January 19, 1921 in Fort Worth, Texas (United States). She was the author of The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Patricia Highsmith (January 19, 1921 – February 4, 1995)[1] was an American novelist and short story writer widely known for her psychological thrillers, including her series of five novels featuring the character Tom Ripley.

She wrote 22 novels and numerous short stories throughout her career spanning nearly five decades, and her work has led to more than two dozen film adaptations. Her writing derived influence from existentialist literature,[2] and questioned notions of identity and popular morality.[3] She was dubbed “the poet of apprehension” by novelist Graham Greene.[4]

Her first novel, Strangers on a Train, has been adapted for stage and screen, the best known being the Alfred Hitchcock film released in 1951. Her 1955 novel The Talented Mr. Ripley has been adapted for film. Writing under the pseudonym Claire Morgan, Highsmith published the first lesbian novel with a happy ending, The Price of Salt,[5] in 1952, republished 38 years later as Carol under her own name and later adapted into a 2015 film.
