Journal Entry 1 by wingduffeliwing from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Wednesday, February 24, 2016
Patricia Highsmith, author of "Strangers on a Train" and the superbly chilling "Ripley" crime novels, here turns her pen to the macabre in a series of brilliant and haunting short fictions. Grotesque tumors swell unstoppably above ground in a graveyard, insecticide-resilient giant cockroaches take command of one of New York's swishest apartment buildings, a UN mission meets a fearsome end in Africa. Whales, the Pope, and a trigger-happy American President, all form the subject matter of individual stories of modern catastrophes which — whether natural or unnatural — fix the reader with the dark perception of Patricia Highsmith's vision.
