HISTORY


UNBUTTONING AMERICA:

A Biography of Peyton Place


By Ardis Cameron (South Portland ME)

Unbuttoning America tells how a sensational murder in Gilmanton, New Hampshire, became Peyton Place, the extraordinary novels, films, and television show that remain cultural phenomena. With its frank discussions of poverty, sexuality, discrimination, and small-town hypocrisy, Grace Metalious’s novel was more than a tawdry potboiler, Ardis Cameron argues, as it anticipated second-wave feminism and was part of a larger struggle over belonging and recognition.
