Yes, some of the language is coarse, but it's naturally coarse language. Allison's friend, through no real fault of her own, gets involved in a legal wrangle about exactly the kind of things Peyton Place "doesn't talk about," which forms the moral and dramatic core of the book.

Bill, and then found herself the wife of a school principal in Gilmanton, New Hampshire. It was not a role she relished: Metalious had a deeply ingrained rebellious streak and she was dismissive of small town society.

Battening on stories of small town scandal, and herself the subject of small town disapproval, the novel she produced rocked and shocked the American reading public.

The book shifts between characters and storylines, so it is both episodic and expansive, but in a general way it centers on three characters: Connie is a striking attractive woman who lived in New York and returned to Peyton Place as a widowed mother. Metalious based Selena and the scandal that surrounds her on Barbara Roberts, a woman from the area who was at the center of an infamous court case, and many of her subplots were straight out of Gilmanton gossip.

It was all super hot at the time, but what made the book such a spectacular success was its tone.

GFT, Amazon Reviewer. Paperback Verified Purchase. It's fascinating to read "Peyton Place" today. In the s, the runaway bestseller was notorious for its lurid descriptions of small town life, sex and violence in New England. Banned in some towns and libraries, it was the kind of book parents hid from their children and that children did anything to read.

Even though the range of acceptable subject matter has broadened considerably since the s, there are still passages in "Peyton Place" that shock with their blunt and explicit descriptions: All of this occurs in the context of a riveting narrative that had me really caring about what happens to the main characters.

There is Allison MacKenzie, a dreamy, sexually awakening teen who wants to be a writer; her mother Constance, who focuses on work and respectability while hiding a family secret; Tom Makris, the new school principal, who sets his sights on winning Constance; Selena Cross, a good, hard-working girl who protects her little brother while fending off her evil stepfather; Doctor Matthew Swain, who tends to everyone's physical and emotional ailments; Leslie Harrington, the rich businessman who controls the lives of his workers and much of Peyton Place; his son Rodney, sex-obsessed and irresponsible.

There's also the town bad girl, the newspaperman, the spinster, etc. Some of these story lines are more effective than others; some aspects seem dated.

I think much of the shock factor of "Peyton Place" is how it destroys long held stereotypes of the bucolic New England countryside with its neat towns and quaint steepled churches, suggesting order and moral rectitude. Grace Metalious blew the lid off this perception with the seamy goings-on in "Peyton Place. Cameron says "Peyton Place" has, unfortunately, become "a mere code word for sexual scandal, rather than a map to chart what it hides.

It's a great essay that enhanced my understanding of a very compelling book. I am probably one of the last people on the planet to read this book. As a very young boy in the 50's, I remember my parents reading this book and talking about it in hushed tones and hiding it from me along with the National Enquirer.

Of course by today's standards, this is tame certainly not a "50 Shades of anything". But from the perspective of , I found the descriptions and depicted attitudes to be fascinating - the discussions of race, incest, homosexuality, abortion, religion, premarital sex, any kind of sex. But the book is not about sex, it is about people. This book, at least the title, has become an icon. You can use the phrase "Peyton Place" in a sentence and everyone will know what you mean. The book, set in the 30's and 40's, describes a simpler time, but at the same time, portrays a very complex time in our history.

It is not just Small Town America put on display, but human nature is depicted in accurate detail. Some of the story line is "corny" and not very sophisticated, but I can imagine how this book hit the straight laced public in the 50's.

Peyton Place. English View all editions and formats Summary: The story of a repressive New England town known for its high standards of public morality, and the steamy sexual activities that take place behind its bedroom doors. While the town's rigid mores lead to hypocrisy and repression, the earthy characters have an unbelievably high level of sexual functioning.

In this environment, Allison McKenzie, a dreamy girl coming to womanhood, must make her way without a father, living with her frigid mother Constance McKenzie.
