The No Tell Motel Wife
One of mankind's most basic, most important institutions is marriage. Yet today, at least in the United States, matrimony is crisis-ridden at best, seemingly in a state of near-collapse at worst. The malaise chiefly affects couples in their late twenties and early thirties, products of the post-World War II baby boom, growing up during the Korean War and the dozen years of involvement in Vietnam, their disintegrating relationships a reflection of unstable times. THE NO TELL MOTEL WIFE is the story of one couple, Cynthia and Robert Kinsley, who are young, attractive and successful to all outward appearances, yet are unable to communicate at the most basic level. As a result, Cynthia is driven to seek a false kind of love in the arms of strangers, degrading herself and yet reveling in that very degradation, straining her tenuous marital relationship to the breaking point. Cynthia and Robert - products of an uncaring society, and portrayals of an affliction that plagues many American marriages.
