Have you read Peyton Place (by Grace Metalious)? 

 

Shocking?  Controversial?  Good?

Would you recommend it?

Kind of tame to me, but I've known the plot for thirty years so it may be a question of just being used to it.  It's still really absorbing.  The bio of Grace Metalious http://www.amazon.com/Inside-Peyton-Place-Metalious-Banner/dp/1578062683 adds context and interest, too.

 

Sure, I'd recommend it.
