Even as critics continue to reexamine male-written postwar American novels from new perspectives, a curious lacuna persists in the criticism of the novels written by women in that era. As a result of such scanty inquiry, they are largely absent from literary anthologies on postwar American literature. My research fills this gap by analysing Patricia Highsmith's 1952 The Price of Salt (Carol), Pamela Moore's 1956 Chocolates for Breakfast and Joyce Johnson's Come and Join the Dance to highlight their potential for being taken as examples of social problem novels that advocate evolutionary rather than revolutionary change of postwar heteronormative precepts.
