Highsmith - Criminally good

Expectations are running high here with the November 20 release of Carol. We expect to see drop-dead period clothing and crackling chemistry between Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, but the sharp end of our interest lies in the resurgence of notice in author Patricia Highsmith. 

The Bechdel clip offers a fine peer review of PH's strength in psychological detailing. I've added "The Blunderer," as well as the recent "The Talented Miss Highsmith" to my MUST READ shelf. 

Do you have a personal favorite character from these uneasy tales?
