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:

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

Synopsis:

"[Glazner] manages to locate a redemptive grace in this world while writing from the very thick of it."--Santa Fe New Mexican

Synopsis:

Greg Glazner's lyrical and meditative poems address the burdens, demands, and joys of life at the end of the twentieth century. Their subjects range from a self-portrait distorted by nightfall to a consideration of the place of consciousness in a universe created out of an explosion. These elegant, well-crafted poems depict the spiritual desolation of American life and act as beacons of hope in the quest for sincerity and depth.
