Overview

Esta es una novela de amor entre mujeres, que se lee con la misma atención que despiertan las novelas policíacas de su autora, quien concibió Carol en 1948, cuando tenía veintisiete años y había terminado su primera novela, Extraños en un tren. La historia comienza cuando una joven escenógrafa, que trabajaba provisionalmente como vendedora, atiende a una elegante y sofisticada mujer, recién divorciada, que entra a la tienda para comprar una muñeca a su hija, y cambia para siempre el curso de la vida de la vendedora.

Vintage Highsmith, spinning tension and telling detail out of the mundane. The way that Therese's self awareness blossoms in tandem with her love for Carol exhibits the author's masterful handling of her character's psyches. But like some of her other books, the novel also suffers from occasional longeurs.
