Now a major motion picture starring Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett

A sensual tale of forbidden love, sensuality, and romance, Carol tells the story of Therese, a young sales clerk, and her passionate affair with Carol, a housewife embroiled in a bitter divorce. The two lonely women find something rare and remarkable in each other: freedom from their oppressive daily routines and dreary lives. Together they triumphantly leave to ride into the sunset, but a difficult choice between romantic and familial love brings everything to a sudden, grinding halt.

Applauded for a sensitive and nuanced treatment of characters that defies the stereotypes and myths surrounding homosexuality, Carol is a groundbreaking American novel. With this book, Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley) broke from the canned traditions of lesbian pulp to create a truly beautiful and complex work of fiction. Thrilling, sensual, and honest, Carol is a first-rate novel about love and self-discovery.

From the Back Cover:

A chance encounter between two lonely women leads to a passionate romance in this lesbian cult classic. Therese, a struggling young sales clerk, and Carol, a homemaker in the midst of a bitter divorce, abandon their oppressive daily routines for the freedom of the open road, where their love can blossom. But their newly discovered bliss is shattered when Carol is forced to choose between her child and her lover.
Author Patricia Highsmith is best known for her psychological thrillers Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley. Originally published in 1952 under a pseudonym, The Price of Salt was heralded as "the novel of a love society forbids." Highsmith's sensitive treatment of fully realized characters who defy stereotypes about homosexuality marks a departure from previous lesbian pulp fiction. Erotic, eloquent, and suspenseful, this story offers an honest look at the necessity of being true to one's nature.
Dover (2015) republication of the edition originally published by Bantam Books, New York, 1953.
