Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now part of American film and literary lore, Tom Ripley, "a bisexual psychopath and art forger who murders without remorse when his comforts are threatened" (New York Times Book Review), was Patricia Highsmith's favorite creation. In The Boy Who Followed Ripley(1980), Highsmith explores Ripley's bizarrely paternal relationship with a troubled young runaway, whose abduction draws them into Berlin's seamy underworld. More than any other American literary character, Ripley provides "a lens to peer into the sinister machinations of human behavior" (John Freeman, Pittsburgh Gazette).

Synopsis:

Calling upon the ancient Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone, examines the love between mother and daughter, two tumblers locked in an eternal somersault: each mother a daughter, each daughter a potential mother.

Synopsis:

"Ripley is an unmistakable descendant of Gatsby, that 'penniless young man without a past' who will stop at nothing."'"Frank Rich

Synopsis:

In settings as various as a patio in Arizona, the bistros and boulevards of Paris, the sun-drenched pyramids of Mexico--and directly from the Greek myth itself--Rita Dove explores this relationship and the dilemma of letting go.

About the Author
