From the Publisher "I have long had a theory that Nabokov knew and modeled the climactic cross-country car chase in on Therese and Carol''s frenzied bid for freedom," writes Terry Castle in about this novel, arguably Patricia Highsmith''s finest, first published in 1952 under the pseudonym Clare Morgan. Soon to be a new film, tells the riveting story of Therese Belivet, a stage designer trapped in a department-store day job, whose salvation arrives one day in the form of Carol Aird, an alluring suburban housewife in the throes of a divorce. They fall in love and set out across the United States, pursued by a private investigator who eventually blackmails Carol into a choice between her daughter and her lover. With this reissue, may finally be recognized as a major twentieth-century American novel.
