    Highsmith reaches beyond her proven strengths.., March 25, 2002 Reviewer: lazza from London Patricia Highsmith is known for her tightly-woven psychological mysteries, especially where anxiety levels of the accused criminal approach the breaking point. Ms Highsmith has also published many short stories of lesser quality, mostly because she has a shorter runway for building the suspense. Having said this, her short story collection 'Eleven' does have nice juicy bits. In 'Tales of Natural and Unnatural Catastrophes' Paticia Highsmith turns her attention to modern issues (eg, pollution) and writes some rather strange stories where these issues are turned upside-down. I would broadly classify them has horror rather than mystery/suspense, and they are quite readable. Yet one gets the impression that this is all very old hat. And this material relects the general demise of Highsmith's works during the latter part of her career (1980s onwards). Bottom line: okay, but Highsmith has done much better than this. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
