Happy birthday, Patricia Highsmith.

Patricia Highsmith, author of Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley, among many other works, was born today in 1921. She died in 1995.

If I can reach WEBR okay on Monday (snow is in our forecast), I plan to play on my radio show "It's a Mystery" a production of Strangers on a Train that features Ray Milland and later Andrea Doria survivor Ruth Roman. "It's a Mystery" is broadcast Mondays at 11A ET and is Webcast here.

For more information on Highsmith, see Andrew Wilson's biography, Beautiful Shadow.
