The Price of Salt

OR Carol

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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. The book is also the basis of the acclaimed 2015 film Carol, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.

Customer Reviews

One star for this version!!

The book itself is wonderful, but this particular version is riddled with so many spelling errors, I mean like page after page of them, I was beginning to think they paid an ESL child to type it over from print! It makes no sense why this copy is so messed up. Spend the extra few dollars on the other iBooks version; maybe that one has sentences where you don't have to sit there for 5 minutes wondering what the author ACTUALLY meant by the misspelled nonsense words.

a banger

An Absolute Dream
