An unlikely encounter between Therese, a young sales clerk, and Carol, a lonely homemaker, leads to an amorous romance in this classic work of lesbian fiction. Struggling against the oppressive routines of their daily lives and the strict social norms governing mid-century femininity, the new lovers take to the open road where their new relationship can thrive. But their dreamy, blissful adventure is sharply interrupted when Carol must make a difficult choice between her child and her lover.

Patricia Highsmith is famous for penning thrillers like Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley, but her keen ability to create compelling characters and narratives truly shines in this oft-overlooked classic. Published under a pseudonym in 1952, Highsmith's lyrical prose and sensitive, well-rounded treatment of lesbian characters marked a significant departure from the stereotyped lesbian pulp fiction that had historically dominated the marketplace. A work that demands our respect and attention, The Price of Salt is an honest and profound meditation on love and the importance of following one's heart.

Review:

'Has the drive of a thriller but the imagery of a romance ... This is a book that is hard to set aside; it demands to be read late into the night with eyes burning and heart racing' Val McDermid 'A document of persecuted love ... perfect' Independent 'Gently exploratory, genuinely moving' Mail on Sunday 'An original, honest novel, a remarkable imaginative achievement by any standard ... compelling' Financial Times

Book Description:

Now a major motion picture by Todd Haynes starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara
