Having read most of Highsmith s books and being an inveterate reader of books about misfits and sociopaths I was completely taken aback by my reaction to this I felt so close to the protagonist that although I kept Highsmith s books at the time after a while I had to make this one leave home It made me way too uneasy to have it close byI was having a slightly difficult life when I read it I expect now it wouldn t scare me to death Still my feeling is that this is not a book to read if you are in the depths of despair Be advised

A ue tem mas a ue imagina ter muito diferente perfeita Sem lamúrias e sem pena de ninguém a história de Edith esconde o crime menos policial já aobrdado por Highsmith um crime ue não ofende a lei e não tem voz sutil e intenso. As Michael Dirda assured me in his reviews of Patricia Highsmith books I really enjoyed Edith s Diary and whipped through it uickly Like watching a train wreck I could not keep from reading about Edith s devastating emotional and mental decline She seems to operate well creatively writing and sculpting cleaning and working yet hits the truth with her comment early on after her worthless son Cliffie expresses an interest in Uncle George s codeine cough medicine We re all crackers Edith thought all insane She seems productive preparing meals going to work writing articles for her local newspaper but her diary entries clue us in that all is not well She imagines a perfect fantasy world in her diary early in the novel The entry was a lie But after all who was going to see it And she felt better having written it felt less melancholic almost cheerful in fact The calmness and matter of fact narration belies the increasing madness of her heroine My sympathy for Edith started to grow at this point She s depressed and troubled but trying to keep a lid on it not unlike her driving She was tempted to put on speed but prudently kept within the limit a discipline she found easy She also stifled her anger on hearing of her ex husband s new baby and freuently smothers her rage at her philandering husband A further key to her state is the freuent reference to her smiling her laughter giggles and hilarity when she might be expected to be angry The abyss Edith feels early on grows and swallows her by novel s end and Highsmith provides no respite for the reader Does she believe in nature or nuture Highsmith has said that it s the former which produces the criminal mind and Edith like Highsmith has a cold unsatisfactory relationship with her parents as the incorrigible Cliffie does with EdithI haven t encountered this much drinking in a novel since The Thin Man Friends and neighbors drop by for drinks at every hour of the day Visits dwindle as Edith s mental state declines and soon it is mainly her psychotic son Cliffie joining her for cocktails and wine at dinner The denouement is a surprise but fitting as the other options of psychoanalysis in that day and the creepy doctors her ex husband brings over offer unlikely solutions for Edith and there is a nice wrap up in being brought down by her own idealized creation of her sonFrom Dirda Like Oscar Wilde Highsmith insisted in Plotting and Writing Suspense Fiction1966 that art essentially has nothing to do with morality convention or moralizing I find the public passion for justice uite boring and artificial for neither life nor nature care if justice is ever done or not The murder in the novel is left vague and the obvious evildoer goes unpunished
