Patricia Highsmith makes me proud to be a Patricia. She wasn't perfect — far from it — but I admire her for many reasons, chiefly for her legendary novel The Price of Salt. She died 17 years ago, but the present has been good to her in the last few years. The 2010 biography The Talented Miss Highsmith was a fascinating and in-depth look into the life of the writer, who was also a lesbian. The book won author Joan Schenkar awards and praise, but also divulged many things about the somewhat secretive loner Patricia Highsmith was.

Now the lesbian-themed The Price of Salt is being adapted into a feature film called Carol, starring Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska. The film is going into production in New York and London this February, which means we'll hopefully see it »
