    1. Grace Metalious was an American author, best known for the controversial novel Peyton Place.She was born into poverty and a broken home as Marie Grace de Repentigny in the mill town of Manchester, New Hampshire Blessed with the gift of imagination, she was driven to write from an early age After graduating from Manchester High School Central, she married George Metalious in 1943, became a housewife and mother, lived in near squalor and continued to write.With one child, the couple moved to Durham, New Hampshire, where George attended the University of New Hampshire In Durham, Grace Metalious began writing seriously, neglecting her house and her three children When George graduated, he took a position as principal at a school in Gilmanton, New Hampshire.At the age of 30, she began work in the fall of 1954 on a manuscript with the working title The Tree and the Blossom By the spring of 1955, she had finished a first draft However, she and her husband regarded The Tree and the Blossom as an unwieldy title and decided to give the town a name which could be the book s title They first considered Potter Place the name of a real community near Andover, New Hampshire Realizing their town should have a fictional name, they looked through an atlas and found Payton the name of a real town in Texas They combined this with Place and changed the a to an e Thus, Peyton Place was born.Metalious the Pandora in bluejeans was said by some to be a dreadful writer and a purveyor of filth, but her most famous book changed the publishing industry forever With regard to her success, she said, If I m a lousy writer, then an awful lot of people have lousy taste, and as to the frankness of her work, she stated, Even Tom Sawyer had a girlfriend, and to talk about adults without talking about their sex drives is like talking about a window without glass Her other novels, all of which sold well but never achieved the same success as her first, were Return to Peyton Place 1959 , The Tight White Collar 1961 and No Adam in Eden 1963.Metalious died of alcoholism on February 25, 1964 If I had to do it over again, she once remarked, it would be easier to be poor Before I was successful, I was as happy as anyone gets She is buried in Smith Meeting House Cemetery in Gilmanton, New Hampshire.

    2. This is a tough book, but very realistic It weaves between many decades and lineages but it is written so well it is easy to follow Though many of the characters come out evil and jaded, the ending has hope

    3. The fight was strong in Metalious in this novel that follows the lives of a thread of women, all related from the great grandmother all the way down to the g granddaughter, who all share the same flaw a complete and utter inability to love widely, freely, openly There s a deep sadness in this book that I did not expect, and the characters are often so emotionally damaged their despicable Yet, Metalious sets the story up in such a way that explains why or how they ve ended up that way It s melodr [...]

    4. Here again the same theme as in The Tight White Collar x,family problems,French Canadians living in small town New Hampshire.I could relate to some of the places described or the mindset of the poeple there_simply because I lived in Nashua,NH for awhile.Fast read_It was an interesting portrayal of how traits sterotypes from one generation are passed on through each new generation.Some of which need very badly to be broken.

    5. Grace Metalious told the story with a deep sense of understanding of the topic It made the list of my most loved books and i recommended it to all my friends.It descibed alot raw sexuality that grips your flesh.

    6. Found in a second hand bookshop for 50p Read only because the author wrote Peyton Place that sold 10m copies at the time.Persona opinion real garbage.I am going to throw it in the paper garbage bin
