See All Formats & Editions

The Tremor of Forgery is considered by many to be Patricia Highsmith's finest novel. Set in Tunisia in the mid-1960s, it is the story of Howard Ingham, an American writer who has gone abroad to gather material for a movie too sordid to be set in America. Ingham is cool towards Ina, the girlfriend he left behind in New York, but his feelings start to change

I've read about everything Patricia Highsmith has ever written and she remains one of my favorite authors.  She is perhaps best known for the Ripley books and Strangers on a Train.  (Alfred Hitchcock reportedly cheated her when he purchased the rights for Strangers on a Train and she was not well-compensated for her work.)  I know that I have read this book in the past but look forward to a second reading and having it available on my Nook.  Some of you are perhaps familiar with her well-known short story, "The Lottery," found in many high school anthologies.

This was my first Highsmith after reading so much about her. I agree she writes well. Maybe in past times what she wrote might have been interesting. To me it the pace was slow and boring and the psychological insights less than eye-opening.
