What People are Saying About This

Jennifer Scanlon

“Scholarly attention to Peyton Place has been intermittent, and no one else, to date, has approached the book with such attention to detail, and such theoretical sophistication, as Hirsh-Dickinson. Dirty Whites and Dark Secrets provides a well-written, smart, provocative, and most welcome analysis.”
