Summary (From the publisher):

Mermaids on the Golf Course are among Highsmith's most mature, psychologically penetrating works. As the title story, in which a man's brush with death endows his everyday desires with tragic consequences, the warm familiarities of middle-class life becomes the eerie setting for Highsmith's chilling portrayals of violence, secrecy, and madness.
