Oh, the intrigue!

Our next book will be the ever-controversial Peyton Place by Grace Metalious. This is one of those books that's been on my "to read... someday" list for awhile now, so I love that the BW&R Book Challenge is giving me an opportunity to finally get around to reading it. And an interesting sidenote: I just read that Stephen King's Dolores Claiborne is thought to be an homage to Peyton Place. He borrowed characters and certain plot elements from Peyton Place for his 1992 novel. I personally love this tie-in, seeing as we just read The Shining. So, close the curtains from your neighbor's prying eyes and start reading Peyton Place by Grace Metalious.
