Joan Schenkar published Patricia Highsmith & Michael Jackson: How the Dark Lady of American Letters Met the Self-Styled King of Pop on these screens recently, and a great many people noticed — including the editors of the New York Times. Now the Highsmith comments about Jackson are the first item in this week’s “Inside the List” column in the Sunday Book Review. We blush. We thank Joan Schenkar again and look forward anew to her upcoming biography, The Talented Miss Highsmith: The Secret Life and Serious Art of Patricia Highsmith. And, as is our job description, we hold the door open in welcome for our new visitors.
