Overview

A groundbreaking American novel for its honest and sensitive portrayal of a lesbian couple in the 1950s, Carol is a truly remarkable story. When Therese, a young sales clerk, meets Carol, a housewife in the midst of a bitter divorce, they share an immediate connection. Together, they leave New York and embark on a journey across the country to explore their new relationship. But their newfound bliss is strained and complicated when Carol's old life catches up with them.


Published in 1952 by Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley), Carol was immediately popular in the lesbian community upon its release. It continues to be treasured today for its beautiful prose, compelling characters, and a treatment of homosexuality that does away with myths and stereotypes. Sensual and eloquent, Carol is an important and openhearted tale about love and self-determination.
