Abstract
WITH NORTON'S PUBLICATION OF "Slowly, Slowly in the Wind and "The Black House, Patricia Highsmith's entire body of work is now back in print. First published in 1970 and 1981, respectively, these two volumes are among Highsmith's must nuanced and psychologically suspenseful works. "Slowly, Slowly in the Wind gathers stories that explore the hypocrisies or the Catholic Church, the writing life, Poe-like horror fantasies, and more. The stories in "The Black House mine classic Highsmith Terrain as they sketch the lives of suburban dwellers that appear quite normal at first but unravel to reveal their proximity to the macabre. Both collections are perfect examples of Highsmith's view of human nature and a fitting capstone to the reintroduction of one of the twentieth century's greatest writers
