    When reading Patricia Highsmith, I always expect her stories to have some sort of point Is the story about cockroaches in a luxury apartment building about the idle rich getting their comeuppance Is the story about homeless people picnicking on the White House lawn advocating the institutionalization of the homeless Surely, in a fewpages, the story will take some twist to make it clearer where she s going with this But instead, the story just ends naturally and inconclusively There is When reading Patricia Highsmith, I always expect her stories to have some sort of point Is the story about cockroaches in a luxury apartment building about the idle rich getting their comeuppance Is the story about homeless people picnicking on the White House lawn advocating the institutionalization of the homeless Sure...

    A 1987 story collection so, later work by Highsmith, who started her career with Strangers on a Train in the 1950s, I think Highsmith was a sharp, complicated, mean, angry, misanthropic, fearful, unhappy writeramong other things Her takes on the Zeitgeist fears of the 1980s everything from the trend of putting old people into retirement homes, to conspicuous consumption in high rise office towers, to the ultimate 80 s fear of nuclear annihilation at the cavalier whim of a cowboy president A 1987 story collection so, later work by Highsmith, who started her career with Strangers on a Train in the 1950s, I think Highsmith was a sharp, compli...

    Si estas cansado de los finales felices este libro es para vos Todo puede salir mal o por lo menos, no tan bien.La autora se maneja con cierto grado de improbabilidad en cada relato de este libro, por ejemplo una mujer que vive hasta los 210 a os, una invasi n de cucarachas en un edificio de lujo, un hombre encerrado en una c mara de desechos nucleares, etc Con esto, saca al lector de su plano de la realidad , pero no tanto, solo lo suficiente para que veamos que la cat strofe esta a la Si estas cansado de los finales felices este libro es para vos Todo puede salir mal o por lo menos, no tan bien.La autora se maneja con cierto grado de improbabilidad en cada relato de este libro, ...
