An enjoyable read (great for the beach) centered around a knitting store in Manhattan. I loved getting to know each of the characters.
Highsmith is superb, a real classic in the suspense genre, so this insight into her work methods was irresistible to me. It's like a conversation with an old friend -- a wise old friend.
The true story of an intellectual and her husband sent to cadre schools during the Cultural Revolution. It's a sharp criticism of the nonsensical events and human mistreatment without a single outwardly negative statement. Simply written but clear, heartfelt and offering a unique perspective on the Cultural Revolution filled with a quiet inner strength and love for family.
