About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Deep Water by HIGHSMITH, Patricia (1921-1995).


First Edition of the author's fourth book under her own name, following The Talented Mr. Ripley (of which we also have marvelous copies on offer). 8vo: [8], 213, [1]pp. Publisher's black spine lettered in silver over turquoise cloth, the publisher's monogram stamped in silver on the upper cover, the fore-edge untrimmed; in an illustrated dust jacket priced $2.95. A just about Fine copy, the tips rubbed with very minor losses; in a Near Fine jacket, rubbed along the bottom edge with a few scattered smudges of black ink (restricted to the bottom quarter-inch). Quite a collectible example. In the small town of Little Wesley, Victor Van Allen decides to discourage his wife's many lovers by hinting that he may have killed her previous beau, Malcolm McRae. Basis for the 1981 French film directed by Michel Deville and starring Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant.
