Peyton Place by Grace Metalious
VINTAGE PAPERBACK  DELL BOOKS
Cute little vintage paperback in very good condition. Cover and binding are excellent with minimal wear. Water stain to bottom of blue text block. A few dog eared pages and a handful of pages with some blue bleeding to margin [see last 2 photos]. Otherwise, excellent.
First published in 1956, Peyton Place uncovers the passions, lies and cruelties that simmer beneath the surface of a postcard-perfect town. At the centre of the novel are three women, each with a secret to hide: Constance MacKenzie, the original desperate housewife; her daughter Allison, whose dreams are stifled by small-town small-mindedness; and Selena Cross, her gypsy-eyed friend from the wrong side of the tracks.
