Grace Metalious

a.k.a. Marie Grace (nee) DeRepentigny Metalious

Author Code: AGRM

Born: Sep. 8, 1924 - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA

Died: Feb. 25, 1964 - Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Educated at Manchester Central High School, Grace took part in school plays and began to write. Soon after graduation, she married George Metalious. The couple moved to Durham, New Hampshire and Grace began to write seriously, while her husband attended University. After graduation, George became a school principal in Gilmartin, New Hampshire. Grace worked on her first novel beginning in 1954and finished it in 1955. Considered too controversial for most publishers, it was finally accepted by Messner and was published in late 1956 as Peyton Place. The book was an enormous success and, in spite of negative criticism, reached the New York Times best-seller list and was an international hit. The following year, the filmPeyton Place became a box-office success and in 1964, the equally successful TV series began a run of 5 years. Grace never again matched the success ofPeyton Place, but her works did sell well. A heavy drinker, she succumbed to cirrhosis of the liver and died at the age of 39. Her other works include Return to Peyton Place (1959), The Tight White Collar (1961) and No Adam in Eden (1963).
