The Price of Salt

Novel by Patricia Highsmith


The Price of Salt is a 1952 romance novel by Patricia Highsmith, first published under the pseudonym Claire Morgan. The author – known as a suspense writer based on her one earlier novel, Strangers on a Train – used a pseudonym due to the story's lesbian content. Its relatively happy ending was unprecedented in gay fiction.
