Re: RARA-AVIS: Holiday haul?

From: Doug Bassett (

I got hardback editions of Patricia Highsmith's SELECTED STORIES and the Everyman Library collection of the first three Ripley stories. I don't think Highsmith is really a hb or noir writer -- a closer formulation is probably Roald Dahl crossed with the finest of the American psychological thriller writers
-- but she's often talked about here, so there you are.

At any event she's a genius, one of America's genuinely great post WW 2 writers, I think.

I also have the latest couple of Hard Cases, THE GIRL WITH THE LONG GREEN HEART by Block and McBain's GUTTER AND THE GRAVE lying around.
