Edith's Diary - Patricia Highsmith well-written and disturbing, especially if you are a mother. The son is a bad seed from early on and the whole family situation is a slow-motion train crash. As always, Highsmith is great at building tension. Even though you have an idea of what's going to happen, you can't put it down. Read this in two late evenings.
