Patricia Highsmith

Patricia Highsmith, American novelist.
Patricia Highsmith (1921 - 1995). 1

An American novelist who played piano.

Mozart, her composer of choice in moments of utter hopelessness, came to Highsmith’s aid in the immediate aftermath of the split [end of a four-year relationship].  She had chosen to listen to his music rather than take a sedative at other times of crisis and she hoped he wouldn’t let her down. 'With Mozart’s courage, I could face lions,' she said.
