Control click heading to hear excerpt from the audiobook of Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley (1955) read by Michael Hayden.
This is a scene from Purple Noon
(1960), adapted from Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley. Below is the scene recreated for an advertising campaign by the South Korean firm Polham.
From 1942 to 1948, Highsmith scripted for comic books. She talks about her work for comic book publishers in this 1987 interview
. Having left the field, she got in a nice jab at the comics world in The Talented Mr. Ripley when Ripley phones comic book artist Frederick Reddington (pages 14-16): "Tom had a hunch about Reddington. He was a comic-book artist. He probably didn't know whether he was coming or going."
