The book that damned an entire town FERN FULTON: "I'm the only friend Gloria Wealdon has in this town. How could she write those dreadful things about me and my husband and our daughter?" VIRGINIA FULTON, age 15: "Mrs Wealdon's a stinker and I'd like to murder her and write a sequel to her book. I'd call it Population 12,359." DR. JAY MANNERHEIM, psychologist: "Gloria Wealdon has simply touched off unpleasantries that in many cases would have exploded sooner or later anyway." MILO WEALDON: "I never realized my wife had such contempt, such loathing for me until I read her book." MIN STEWART: "My family has been here for generations. I consider Gloria Wealdon so vulgar as to be quite beneath contempt." GLORIA WEALDON: "The hell with everybody in this snotty town. They made my life miserable. Now we're even."
