A foreboding and atmospheric tale about love between women The Price of Salt sensitively portrays an aspiring set designer’s coming to terms with her sexuality Set against the backdrop of postwar repression the story follows nineteen year old Therese Belivet as she abandons her uiet life as a shopgirl for a budding romance with an older married lover Carol Aird The bulk of the novel’s drama arises from Carol’s fraught attempt to divorce her affluent husband retain custody of her daughter and build a life with Therese; class conflict between the two women counterpoints the main plot and saves the relationship from feeling sappy In hardboiled prose Highsmith fully renders the heroine’s inner life her sense of apprehension and self doubt and the author expertly captures the young artist’s near obsessive reverence for Carol as well as her resentment toward her wealth The novel’s aged well and benefits from rereading

Ok I have Feelings about this book And there might be some spoilery things but no than I was spoiled before reading it soit's probably not too badI spent a large part of this being depressed because Carol's a total dick to Therese most of the time HOWEVER Omg the ending Basically the last 20 or so pages Awesome And who doesn't love a road trip book Because this is two ladies in love WHO ROAD TRIP IT In the '50s In America Like Lolita but less child rapey I would like this to be the blurb on the book pleaseHighsmith has an afterword in the edition I read that she wrote in '89 saying among other things of course Prior to this book homosexuals male and female in American novels had had to pay for their deviation by cutting their wrists drowning themselves in a swimming pool or by switching to heterosexuality so it was stated or by collapsing—alone and miserable and shunned—into a depression eual to hellSo THANK YOU HIGHSMITH for starting the trend of fixing that And in the totally repressive year of 1953 So awesome
