This Sweet Sickness

by Patricia Highsmith

This Sweet Sickness Synopsis

David Kelsey, a young scientist, has an unyielding conviction that life will turn out all right for him; he just has to fix the Situation: he is in love with a married woman. Obsessed with Annabelle and the life he has imagined for them-including the fully furnished cabin he maintains for her-David prepares to win her over, whatever it takes. In this riveting tale of a deluded loner, Highsmith reveals her uncanny ability to draw out the secret obsessions that overwhelm the human heart.

This Sweet Sickness Press Reviews

Terrific book, very wry humor, and a great unreliable narrator. -- Sarah Hilary, author of Come and Find Me Patricia Highsmith's novels are peerlessly disturbing...bad dreams that keep us thrashing for the rest of the night. -- The New Yorker
