Grace Metalious Bobblehead
Grace Metalious, née Marie Grace de Repentigny (19241964), a Manchester, N.H., native, was best known for her racy novel "Peyton Place" (1956), one of the most widely read novels ever published. Metalious portrayed the dark secrets of a small New England town, apparently basing her story on her experiences in Gilmanton, Laconia, and Alton, N.H. The SocietyŐs bobblehead is fashioned after a photograph taken by Larry Smith of Metalious at her typewriter dressed in her characteristic blue jeans, flannel shirt, sneakers, and pony tail. The photograph became known as ŇPandora in Blue JeansÓ and was the publicŐs first image of the controversial new author. PLEASE NOTE: $1 additional shipping cost will be added to each bobblehead shipped outside of New England. SPECIAL: Get 10% off when you buy the bobblehead and the book "Peyton Place" (regularly $17.95).
