EDITH'S DIARY


EDITH'S DIARY

PATRICIA HIGHSMITH    Book Number: 86569    Product format: Paperback

Edith Howland's precious diary provides a reflective interlude in her busy day. This 'fine and chilling character study' (Newsweek) charts a diary gone wrong. As Edith's American 1950s suburban life turns sour, her diary entries only grow brighter and while her life plunges into chaos and her husband Brett abandons her for a younger woman, leaving her with their delinquent son Cliffie and his senile uncle, a tale of success and happiness blooms in her notebook. She had had such high hopes for her new venture with Brett, a local newspaper. An old-fashioned psychological thriller tinged with a poignancy of Edith's struggle not to go under. Patricia Highsmith is a writer of intense subtlety who probes to the very core of her heroine. Disturbing and sad. 318pp in facsimile paperback reprint of the 1977 original.
