Join us on the second Tuesday of the month.

We will be discussing The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith. In this classic novel, we are introduced to the suave Tom Ripley, a young striver seeking to leave behind his past as an orphan. Newly arrived in the heady world of Manhattan, Ripley meets a wealthy industrialist who hires him to bring his playboy son, Dickie Greenleaf, back from gallivanting in Italy. Soon Ripley’s fascination with Dickie’s debonair lifestyle turns obsessive as he finds himself enraged by Dickie’s ambivalent affections for Marge, a charming American dilettante, and Ripley begins a deadly game. The Talented Mr. Ripley serves as an unforgettable introduction to this smooth confidence man, whose talent for self-invention is as unnerving―and unnervingly revealing of the American psyche―as ever. (From the Publisher)

Copies of the book are available here. Ebook copies are available through Digital Library of Illinois or the Libby app.
