"Highsmith's writing is wicked . . . it puts a spell on you, after which you feel altered, even tainted."—Entertainment Weekly

With Norton's publication of Slowly, Slowly in the Wind, Patricia
Highsmith's entire body of work is now back in print. First published
in 1979, this volume is one of Highsmith's most nuanced and
psychologically suspenseful works. Slowly, Slowly in the Wind
gathers stories that explore the hypocrisies of the Catholic Church, the
writing life, Poe-like horror fantasies, and more. This collection is a
perfect example of Highsmith's view of human nature and a fitting
capstone to the reintroduction of one of the twentieth century's
greatest writers.
