Caspary, Heaney, Highsmith

Guess what? Here are another three wonderful books I read in 2016! Vera Caspary’s Laura was so, so good. She switches between the perspective of a few different characters throughout the course of the story in a way that feels fresh and clever and unexpected, even though the book is over seventy years old. And Katie Heaney’s Dear Emma was great, too. I loved her first book, the autobiographical Never Have I Ever. It seems she’s just as talented at fiction.

And you probably already know how I feel about Patricia Highsmith. I still haven’t seen the film version of The Price of Salt/Carol, but the book was very good. It’s Highsmith, so, duh.
