Inhaltsangabe

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.

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 Price of Salt is the basis for the upcoming film Carol, starring Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, and Kyle Chandler, to be released December 18, 2015.

Amazing Story - Great Narrator !

Knowing Patricia Highsmith as an author of thrillers I was very surprised by this, for the time rather unusual, novel. The story of the two very different women is written very well and can be enjoyed over and over again! Cassandra Campbell (the narrator) brings the characters to live with her great voice. Being British made it hard for me to imagine the characters American accents properly - another good reason to get the audiobook! I can only recommend it and hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did (and still do).
