Little Tales of Misogyny

Little Tales of Misogyny

‘These little tales are tremendous fun, glorious hand grenades lobbed at the reader by a gleeful, cackling Patricia Highsmith’ Dan Rhodes

Little Tales of Misogyny is Highsmith’s legendary, cultish short-story collection. With an eerie simplicity of style, Highsmith turns our next-door neighbours into sadistic psychopaths, lying in wait among white picket fences and manicured lawns. In these darkly satirical, often hilarious, sketches you’ll meet seemingly familiar women with the power to destroy both themselves and the men around them.

Reviews

For eliciting the menace that lurks in familiar surroundings, there's no one like Patricia Highsmith
Time
These little tales are tremendous fun, glorious hand grenades lobbed at the reader by a gleeful, cackling Patricia Highsmith
Dan Rhodes
Very wicked, very funny and - this being Highsmith's mission in life, as far as one can tell - very unsettling
Guardian
It's not just the men who come off badly in this short, sharp shock of a collection... Each story is more appalling than the next, deadpan in tone and dripping with black humour.
The Independent
These are extraordinary stories . . . etched in acid and unforgettable . . . Highsmith is a mistress of a fine and dangerous art. Let the reader beware
