I don't know if I am late to the game, but I just found this on the BBC radio 4 archives, It's a 40 minute interview of Patricia Highsmith by Roy Plomley. It's was first broadcast in 1979 so she was about 58 years old. I found it absolutely fascinating. I don't know if there are any geographical restrictions. I apologize in advance if that's the case.
Very fascinating to hear her voice. For some reason I had imagined it to be a bit deeper
Me too. Quite cliché of me but I was expecting to hear the typical abuse of alcohol and cigarette on her voice. And I was so wrong. There is something quite mysterious and seductive about that voice...
Found a new radio interview on "wired for books" dated 1987.
Audio Interview with Patricia Highsmith
Patricia Highsmith, author of The Talented Mr. Ripley, Strangers on a Train, This Sweet Sickness, and several others, speaks with Don Swaim in this 1987 interview about the differences in the English vocabulary between European and American written language. She has had great success throughout her career, and several of her books have been turned into movies. Her most famous character, Tom Ripley, has been a continuous character throughout her career, and has been inspiration for several other books and movies. One thing she comments on is creating a certain pace, or speed of the novel in order to create suspense.

Mortimer: Sohappy, don't worry. I already banned these two and everyone else who is recently registered only to post spams got the same fate. I'll check this place twice a day just to be sure everything is Ok.
