REVIEW Ð MEDCA.XYZ Ò Andrew Wilson

REVIEW Ð MEDCA.XYZ Ò Andrew Wilson CHARACTERS Û Beautiful Shadow: A Life of Patricia Highsmith Andrew Wilson Ò 1 CHARACTERS The first and highly anticipated biography of the author of such classics of suspense as Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr RipleyThe life of Patricia Highsmith was as secretive and unusual as that of many of the best known characters who people her peerlessly disturbing writing Yet even as her work her thrillers short stories and the pseudonymous lesbian novel The Price of Salt have. I m not really a fan of Patricia Highsmith but I do like a good biography And this isn t one The other day I was checking up a fact about Truman Capote and picked up Gerald Clarke s book and was uite lost for about an hour as Truman leaped and gamboled through the pages born aloft like a bubble in the air of my room by the controlled excitement of Mr Clarke s narrative Of course Truman was a very witty gregarious person full of life until the horrors descended Whereas Patricia Highsmith was a gloomy trout In the early part of her life she was a young trout and in the later part she was an old trout Therefore Andrew Wilson has a much tougher job than Gerald Clarke I admit but he thinks that writing a biography euates to heaping up a massive amount of detail backed up by a million little uotes most of which contradict each other And there s to it than that Andrew Wilson amasses terrible piles of information about PH s travelling constant writing perpetual and affairs with women like life before civil society nasty brutish and short and also neverending one after the other after the other It seems nothing ever made PH happy Hitchcock wants to film Strangers on a Train Ehhh Wins awards for The Talented Mr Ripley Phhft Meets ravishing new girlfriend Whatever Feted by the literati of two continents Yeah yeah Here s what happens on page 184 After a few years with a woman named Ellen you could have called it a love hate relationship but that would be an over optimistic interpretation it was a hate hate relationship PH decides one evening to go to a party Ellen beside herself with jealousy rips PH s shirt off her back then downs large Martinis and takes eight pills of veronal PH leaves anyway and goes to have a hamburger with some friends arriving back at 2am to find Ellen in a coma She s taken to Bellevue psych hospital The doctor at Bellevue gave Ellen a fifty fifty chance of survival but rather than hang around her bedside Pat took her lover s car and drove up to Fire Island with a friend for the Independence Day holiday weekend She sunbathed on the beach at Cherry Grove posed for some pictures and forced herself to work believing Ellen is dead at this point In the evening after drinking heavily she picked a fight with a bunch of girls who turned on her and beat her upSo er what did you do last weekendCharacteristic uote from page 219 Mr Wilson is talking about a woman who was PH s literary agent for twenty years The only time she can remember Highsmith laughing was when the writer saw a poster ad in the New York subway where some creep had gouged out the eyes of a child I got up to page 250 and I thought I can t take any Patricia Highsmith she s beginning to seriously depress me And I m only half way through I m outta hereAfterthought I read another a biography about another thoroughly unhappy woman Jean Rhys written by Carole Angier and it was brilliant So just because your subject is a depressive your biography doesn t have to be miserable التبصرة والتذكرة في علوم الحديث ألفية العراقي highly anticipated biography of the author of such classics of suspense as Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr RipleyThe life of Patricia Highsmith was as secretive and unusual as that of many of the best known characters who people Ἡ ζωή ἐν τάφῳ her peerlessly disturbing writing Yet even as Медальонът Ч2 her work История на християнската църква Т2 her thrillers short stories and the pseudonymous lesbian novel The Price of Salt کابوس ماجراهای آقای کا ۱ have.

Andrew Wilson Ò 1 CHARACTERS

REVIEW Ð MEDCA.XYZ Ò Andrew Wilson CHARACTERS Û Beautiful Shadow: A Life of Patricia Highsmith Andrew Wilson Ò 1 CHARACTERS Y lovers But Wilson also traces Highsmith's literary roots in the work of Poe noir and existentialism locating the influences that helped distinguish Highsmith's writing so startlingly from ordinary thrillersThe result is both a serious critical biography and one that reveals much about a brilliant and contradictory woman one who despite her acclaim and affairs always maintained her solitud. So far so good I am on page 250 From some of the reviews I thought PH would be portrayed as an absolutely horrid person She isn t She was eccentric and uite self involved Maybe on the next 250 pages she becomes evil She becomes a little horrid as she ages This was one of the greatest Biographies I have ever read It was interesting and moved uickly This biography also had to use every psychological theory on the planet to explain Highsmith s bizarre behavior She really did not have that bad of a childhood Some people are simply born screwy The very fashionable Asbergers was also raised up as a possibility for her behavior My absolute favorite thing was the fact that she transported her beloved live snails 6 10 under each breast several times across Europe It is explained often that this woman was bone thin so did she have inverted wallets or what holding those creatures in under there I m pretty sure this particular tidbit did not occur because mommy didn t give her a cookie when she was 4 Is that a snail under your breast or are you just happy to see me I have read one of her books and might try some after reading the biography
