Carol or The Price of Salt

Published by Diogenes as Carol
Original Title: The Price of Salt

Carol is the only novel by Patricia Highsmith about a fulfilled love, a love perceived as happiness rather than a wicked delusion. Never again would the author, who began to work on this novel in the wake of a personal encounter, write such sensuous, poetic and erotic prose.

»Some books change lives. This is one of them. This is a book that is hard to set aside; it demands to be read late into the night with eyes burning and heart racing.«
Val McDermid
»Highsmith created a world of her own, claustrophobic and irrational, which we enter each time with a sense of personal danger.«
Graham Greene
»Magnificent – gently exploratory, genuinely moving.«
Mail on Sunday, London
»Very recognizably Highsmith, full of tremor and of threat and of her peculiar genius for anxiety.«
Sunday Times, London
»A document of persecuted love – perfect.«
Independent, London
»An original, honest novel, a remarkable imaginative achievement by any standard [...] as compelling as any of Highsmith’s thrillers. Memorable.«
Financial Times, London
