The Price of Salt (later republished under the title Carol) is a 1952 romance novel by Patricia Highsmith, first published under the pseudonym "Claire Morgan". Highsmith-known as a suspense writer based on her psychological thriller Strangers on a Train-used an alias because she did not want to be tagged as "a lesbian-book writer", and because of the use of her own life references for characters and occurrences in the story

Sure it's the underbelly of American society, New York city always had that charm, but it's not the underbelly you thought you knew. The surprise here is that the characters may be people you've seen at a party sitting in a dark corner, or heard about through 'friends of friends' while lounging at your favorite bar in the West 40's. New York's lost a lot of these characters during the Giuliani years, and that's the main reason why NYC is no longer an interesting place.

i'm naturally lazy, so i love the short story form. i've read a lot of it, good and bad, but mostly bland and safe... so it was a real private joy to find this little gem. this is not only the new york i recall from when i was a kid in the late seventies and eighties, it's more like the new york i imagined existed behind every closed door, in every guy you saw walking down the street, in every girl you secretly leered at in the subway...

i especially loved the story about the guy who works at the rape prevention center. just underneath the hard boiled brogue there is an inmense, brutally honest understanding of people that is refreshingly raw and insightful, probably a bit offensive to knee jerk p.c. types, AND freaking funny as all hell!

this is what really did it for me though. in the last story in the book, a hallucination of a love fling, it's revealed that the main character tools around in a motorcycle. it's not central to the story at all, so it's not described in any detail, just a few hints, but i know it's got to be an old triumph bonneville. my favorite bike. so, i thought, here's some deep stuff that makes you laugh out loud, a really good read that is short and sweet. and on top of that, the guy, the writer, has good taste in bikes. nice.

This book was recommended to me by a publisher-friend who knows I like hidden gems, and I found it to be a totally fun and refreshing collection, a brisk and honest swim through the reality that exists outside of our soul-sucking media vortex. The rape counselor saga in particular was hysterical, endearing and --I hate to say it-- would make a great film!

I agree with everything these reviews have said - except for the guy who said New York City is no longer an interesting place. Odd-lot characters in unlikely predicaments are still alive and well here and probably anywhere a gutsy and imaginative writer like Matthew Licht is willing to look. I love that though Licht's sensibility may have been honed in NY, the stories don't have a provincial, claustrophobic, New York-centric feel at all. My two favorite stories happen to be set at a cheesy Florida beach resort (Amourang) and in an upscale Zurich restaurant (Finsteraarhorn). It's worth buying the book so you can own the last 2 paragraphs on p.16 alone. Grotesque, angry, bumbling, hilarious, touching. Female-pleasing indeed!

Great great writing - let's have some more!!

From the beautiful cover photography to the last word, Matthew Licht's new book is full of "familiar surprises". Just when you think you've seen or known one of these characters or situations, he spins the story into an alternate sensibility or possibility. Each story is a delightful first read, then a revealing and richly rewarding re-read. I was especially moved by "Just a Touch," which has stayed with me since the very first time I read it in Ambit and which feels like it's destined to become a classic of short story literature.

Take note of these intelligent, witty stories with an undercurrent of social critique, no, wait, social thrashing. An absorbing, titillating new voice that will worm its way into your heart. When is the next book coming out? I need to read more from this unusual, surprising author!
