RIP: Grace Metalious, Sept. 8, 1924 - Feb. 25, 1964

The small New Hampshire town where Grace Metalious lived while writing
Peyton Place.  The locals were not pleased when, naturally, most readers
 thought (correctly) that the novel was based on actual Gilmanton folk and real local stories.

"Pandora in Blue Jeans" as the press dubbed her.
