Now the Highsmith renaissance continues with this brilliant collection of 28 short stories, a great majority of which have never been seen before. The stories assembled in Nothing That Meets the Eye, written between 1938 and 1982, are vintage Highsmith: a gigolo-like psychopath preys on unfulfilled career women- a lonely spinsters fragile hold on reality is tethered to the bottle- an estranged postal worker invents homicidal fantasies about his coworkers.

While some stories anticipate the diabolical narratives of the Ripley novels, others possess a Capra-like sweetness that forces us to see the author in a new light. From this new collection, a remarkable portrait of the American psyche at mid-century emerges, unforgettably distilled by the inimitable eye of Patricia Highsmith.Author Biography: Patricia Highsmith is the author of such classics as Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr.

Ripley. Born in Fort Worth, Texas, she died in 1995 in Locarno, Switzerland.
