“Against the colourful backgrounds of Mongibello, San Remo, Rome and Venice, larceny and murder hold sway as M. Ripley exhibits his most unusual talent – a talent for evil.” (dust-jacket blurb)
The first of five novels featuring Highsmith’s most enduring, albeit decidedly unendearing, character Tom Ripley, memorably brought to the big screen by Alain Delon (Purple Noon, 1960) and Matt Damon (The Talented Mr. Ripley, 1999). Scarce in such condition.
First edition, 8vo, publisher’s cloth, slight hint of rubbing at corners, otherwise fine, dust-jacket, unclipped with correct price of $3.00, usual slight sunning to spine, minor rubbing to extremities and corners, but overall a bright, clean example.
