The Boy Who Followed Ripley

Patricia Highsmith

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.
