Ali Shaw Sounds Great, but Keep Away from the Schine

Short reviews of three books, Shaw, Schine, and Schenkar

I've been interested in the Highsmith biography for some time now and the Ali Shaw looks like it might be a really fine book.  However, you could give a pass to the Schine and not miss out on much; it didn't do justice to its progenitor. Additionally, we should be discouraging the legions of Austen wannabes from flooding the market with Lord Darcy's Ninth Wife and such.  That said, Schine's book is not in the same vein and as a bit of light reading might be acceptable.
