Controversy surrounded the novel from the beginning- - its sexual openness, multi-layered portraits of small-town people leading small-town lives, the foibles, weaknesses, flaws of being human revealed glaringly- - all this in a page-turning read by a young woman from a small town in New Hamsphire

Newly arrived in Cooper Station, a small, New England town, Chris Pappas and his wife, Lisa, struggle to join the insular society that views them as outsiders. While Chris sets out to establish himself as a teacher, Lisa enters into a clandestine relationship with Anthony Cooper, a descendent of the town's founder. But it is only when the pair run afoul of Doris Palmer -- a woman desperate to keep her secret -- that they feel the true weight of the collar that constrains Cooper Station's citizens. Although redolent of the same themes as Peyton Place and Return to Peyton Place, Grace Metalious' The Tight White Collar did not achieve the same level of success as its predecessors
