Description

'The Glass Cell has lost little of its disturbing power . . . Highsmith was a genuine one-off, and her books will haunt you' Daily TelegraphPhilip Carter has spent six years in prison for a crime he didn't commit.

On his release his beautiful wife is waiting for him.

He has never had any reason to doubt her. Nor their friend, Sullivan. Carter has never been suspicious, or violent. But prison can change a man. In 1961, Patricia Highsmith received a fan letter from a prison inmate.

A correspondence ensued and Highsmith became fascinated with the psychological traumas that incarceration can inflict.
