Damon, Gene. "The Price of Salt.” Ladder, vol. 1, no. 8, May 1957
This is a novel that probes deeply into special problems of a Lesbian. Being remarkably free of the old “candlelight and death” symbolism, and having a “different” kind of an ending, this may well exemplify a new outlook long awaited by the homosexual world.
