Patricia Highsmith

a.k.a. Mary Patricia Plangman, Claire Morgan *

Author Code: APTS

Born: Jan. 19, 1921 - Fort Worth, Texas, USA

Died: Feb. 4, 1995 - Ospedale La Carita, Locarno, Switzerland

Educated at Barnard College, Highsmith (her step-father's surname) studied English composition, playwriting and short story prose.. Following graduation, she was turned down for jobs at all of the leading periodicals such as Time, The New Yorker and Harper's Bazaar, to name a few.Truman Capote recommended her to the Yaddo artist's retreat in the summer of 1948. There, she worked on her first novel, Strangers on a Train, which was published to rave reviews in 1950, and Hitchcock's film version the following year was a tremendous success. She was instantly propelled onto the literary stage. By all accounts, Highsmith suffered from depression and was difficult to get along with. She continued to write until her death, producing her final novel, Small g: A Summer Idyll, in her final year. Her other works include The Price of Salt (1952), The Talented Mr. Ripley (1955), Deep Water (1957), The Cry of the Owl (1962), The Tremor Forgery (1969), Ripley Under Ground (1970), Ripley's Game (1974), Edith's Diary (1977), The Boy Who Followed Ripley (1980), Found in the Street (1986) and Ripley Under Water (1991).
