Books To Die For

The Books To Die For  Group will discuss Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith (Norton, $14.95). Guy Haines is a successful architect in the midst of a divorce, and Charles Anthony Bruno is a conniving psychopath who manipulates a chance encounter with Guy into a sadistic plot to swap murders. Some people are better off dead, says Bruno, like your wife and my father, for instance. As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy becomes trapped in Patricia Highsmith’s perilous world, where under the right circumstances anyone is capable of murder. Strangers on a Train elicits the menace that lurks in familiar surroundings and the unsettling forces that tremble beneath the surface of everyday life.
