This is Meaker’s account of her romance and then ongoing friendship with Patricia Highsmith, famous for “A Stranger on a Train” among other books. She wrote what was considered the first modern positive lesbian novel under the name Claire Morgan. Her books were very strange, and she herself, by the accounts in this book, could be extremely unpleasant harping on her anti-semite beliefs and with prejudices against people of color. If the time had been now, she would have harped probably on political correctness. Given that she wasn’t a very good friend to Meaker, the author did an excellent job of presenting a rank and unbiased look at Patricia Highsmith. Meaker wrote many lesbian pulp fiction novels under various names, one of the more famous being “Spring Fire” under the name Vin Packer.

As a lover of the move Carol, I craved an intimate view of the author of the book it was based on. This story did not disappoint. The narrator truly satisfied audibly -- brought a love affair to life wonderfully.
