What Price Love? 1950s Lesbian Pulp Relationships

Therese is nineteen, working in a department store during the Holiday season. One day a beautiful older woman named Carol comes to her counter and buys a doll which she'd like delivered. Therese, transfixed by Carol, makes a mental note of her address. Although young and inexperienced, Therese writes her a note and is elated when Carol invites her to meet…

Carol is in the middle of a rocky divorce and custody battle. But will that stop her from having an affair with Therese? Will a lesbian relationship be used against Carol in court? Can a new romance survive under these circumstances?

Patricia Highsmith
"The Price of Salt" is written by Patricia Highsmith under the pen name Claire Morgan in 1952. I'm thrilled to hear that a film adaptation of The Price of Salt titled "Carol" starring Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska, is scheduled to shoot in February 2013 in London and New York.

The author also wrote "The Talented Mr. Ripley" which starred Matt Damon in 1999. You film buffs may also know the psychological thriller she wrote "Strangers on a Train" which became a movie in 1951.
