LITTLE TALES OF MISOGYNY
"Christine was absolutely no loss to Philippe except for burial fees."
First published in a 1975 German-language edition, followed in 1977 by Heinemann's U.K. edition, Highsmith's collection of TALES was first published in America in this limited-edition format (followed by a trade edition in 1987.) Faithful to the principle of truth-in-labeling, Highsmith's stories present an imaginative assortment of awful things done to horrible women by terrible men.
