Publisher's Summary

The legendary writer Patricia Highsmith is best remembered today for her chilling psychological thrillers The Talented Mr. Ripley and Strangers on a Train. A critically acclaimed, best-selling author in Europe, Highsmith has for too long been underappreciated in the United States.

Eleven is Highsmith's first collection of short stories, an arresting group of dark masterpieces of obsession and foreboding, violence and instability. Here naturalists meet gruesome ends and unhinged heroes disturb our sympathies. This is a captivating, important collection from "one of the truly brilliant short-story writers of the 20th century" (Otto Penzler). Includes an introduction by Graham Greene.

Meh

While some of these stories have interesting themes, there are no actual endings to any of them. They just continue the end of the story, with no finale or any satisfaction. Most of the time I wasn’t even aware of the switch to the beginning of the next story. They seem like just some musings or unfinished ideas. Decent narration.
