(From the publisher):
has been damned and banned—and hailed as "one of the most extraordinary literary discoveries of recent years."
In its hardcover edition, this bestseller about small-town USA compiled an extraordinary sales record. As a paperback, it has become the bestselling novel of modern times.
From the book, 20th Century Fox made its tremendously successful motion picture starring Hope Lange, Lloyd Nolan, Arthur Kennedy, and Lana Turner.
Now it has become the inspiration for the American Broadcasting Company's fantastically popular TV serial.
