In This Sweet Sickness, David Kelsey has an unyielding conviction that life will turn out all right for him; he just has to fix “the situation” of being in love with a married woman. Obsessed with Annabelle and the life he has imagined for them, David prepares to win her over, whatever it takes.

In this riveting tale of a deluded loner, Highsmith reveals her uncanny ability to draw out the secret obsessions that overwhelm the human heart.

Quotes & Awards

  • This Sweet Sickness is, as we’ve come to expect from Patricia Highsmith, an impressive psychological study. Objectively yet compassionately she examines a young chemist who spends his weekends in a make-believe world in which that girl did not marry somebody else: and relentlessly she shows how his rejection of reality leads to disaster and death. The book has the compulsion of truth.”

    New York Times

  • “We defy you to put this book down once you have started. Highest rating!”

    Mystery Digest

  • “[This] Rorschach of a psychotic personality is a detailed, not a smudged, record of a schizoid’s double vision…and finally the two-way pattern leaves a single trail—for the police.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “No one has created psychological suspense more densely and deliciously satisfying.”

    Vogue, praise for the author
