    I still think the characterization->plot is flawed.. If everyone I harassed gave in like Guy, I would have had a girlfriend by now :)

    Hi, I'd really like to come to this, as I think Highsmith is a fascinating writer. I too am having trouble getting hold of a copy for a fair price... It's extortionate on Amazon and the library is out of copies. Might anyone living in Center City be willing to lend me their copy, perhaps next week? I could come and collect, of course.
    Thanks v much.

      My wife and I live in Spring Garden and I work in Center City. We're done with it, so you're welcome to borrow it. Give me a buzz to arrange -[masked]

      That's really really kind of you. I'll be more organised with library ordering ahead of time in future. I'll call later today. Thanks v much indeed. Sophie

    Hi Joseph! This is a "vintage" book I got it from the library. I suggest you try your local branch and used bookstores. I haunt Book Haven at 22nd and Fairmount.... so far they have had every book on our list for the past couple of years, and they buy them back!

    I wanted to read "Strangers on a Train" but the cost is $200 + dollars. Where can I actually buy this from?
