Edith's Diary based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book was my introduction to Patricia Highsmith; I will be reading more. I took it along on a beach weekend and literally couldn't put it down--carried it to the breakfast table, etc. Why? Nothing much happens--an apparently happy couple grows apart, she is left with their creepy son and ailing uncle, she writes in her diary--but you slowly realize you're observing the unraveling of a woman's psyche. It's superbly done.
