29/02/2020 Patricia Highsmith


We started to discuss about her book “The Cry Of The Owl”, a psychological thriller and the two other short stories “Slowly, Slowly in the Wind” and “Woodrow Wilson's Tie”.

Most of the attendants thought that the atmosphere of the novels is sombre and even a little perverse. Others made a comparison between the life of Patricia Highsmith and those of her characters, her life influencing the life of her characters.

We also mentionned other thriller writers and their famous characters such as Patricia Cornwell and Doctor Kay Scarpetta, a forensic scientist; Michael Connelly and Harry Bosch; Mary Higgins Clark; Ian Rankin. Some said that those writers usually stay true to their main characters to keep their readers true to their books.
