‘What is striking about these stories is their integrity: they are all of a piece . . . a brilliant collection’ – Sunday Times

Unsuspecting victims are devoured by their own obsessions in this perfectly chilling collection of short stories. A man becomes devoted to his pet snails, with fatal results.

A young nanny turns arsonist in a bid to become heroine of the hour. A boy finally stands up to his mother, with knife in hand. Highsmith weaves a world claustrophobic in its intensity, disturbing in its mundanity, as she probes the dark corners of the human psyche.

Eleven is a collection of masterpieces of Highsmith’s particular art, full of compulsion, foreboding and cruel pleasures.
