It’s Broken, Let’s Fix It

This book takes a hard look at the behavior of the modern enterprise as it evolves in this increasingly complex universe. It offers a thoroughly candid analysis of the way things really worktaking the perspective of people being both the perpetrators and the victims in the corporate game. The objective of this critical analysis is to stimulate…

Unfortunately it soon becomes clear that all her demons have come with her. Prowlers, sexual obsessives, frauds, imposters, suicides and murderers: the tropes of her fictions clamour for her attention, rudely intruding on her peaceful Suffolk retreat. After the arrival of Ginny, an enigmatic young journalist bent on interviewing her, events take a catastrophic turn. Except, as always in Highsmith's troubled life, matters are not quite as they first appear . . .

Masterfully recreating Highsmith's much exercised fantasies of murder and madness, Jill Dawson probes the darkest reaches of the imagination in this novel - at once a brilliant portrait of a writer and an atmospheric, emotionally charged, riveting tale.
