A Romance of the 1950's, A MemoirBook - 2003
Patricia Highsmith, author of The Talented Mr. Ripley, now a major motion picture starring Matt Damon, challenged popular stereotypes about homosexuality and women writers. She embarked on a two-year romance with aspiring novelist Marijane Meaker, navigating the underground lesbian bar scene with such literary stars as Janet Flanner. Written with wit and brassy candour, Meaker's startling memoir offers a revealing look at a controversial icon of popular American fiction. Highsmith's novel Ripley's Game is being made into a film starring John Malkovitch, out this spring.
