Peyton Place is a literary masterpiece, brilliantly written, every word artfully crafted. It was made into a major motion picture in 1958, a long-running TV Series and several sequels and adaptations. This reprint includes a 30 page introduction and 11 screen shots from the first movie version of the book starring Lana Turner.
The residents of Peyton Place, New Hampshire, are not happy when its most famous resident, Alison Mackenzie, writes a 'shocking' novel detailing the sinful secrets of the town. Most outraged is malicious Roberta Carter, who wants the book banned from the school library. Roberta's other mission is to destroy her son Ted's marriage to his Italian bride.
