Off Broadway: A Marriage Drama

by William A. Glass


GENRE: Family Drama



Cindy and Dave Knight got married too young. Several years later they are trying to make the best of it. He is a salesman on the fast track with a prestigious corporation. She is the indispensable assistant to a prominent Broadway producer. They own an apartment in Manhattan and enjoy knocking around the city together. However, Dave's erratic behavior and career obsession strain the relationship. Can it be saved?



Only a few cars are scattered about the Sandy Hook parking lot when Cindy and Dave get there. After bundling up, they stroll down a path to the beach, where a chill wind sends one white-capped wave after another crashing onto the shore. Foam races across the sand to where a cluster of seagulls waits. The birds appear to shiver as they fluff their feathers with short, jerky motions. “See, even the seagulls are cold,” Cindy complains.

“We’ll warm up once we start walking.”

“I hope so.”

The pair sets off toward North Beach with purposeful strides. Soon they’re breathing heavily from the exertion of powering through the sand. “I wonder where the people in those other cars went,” Cindy pants. She’s gazing at the barren shoreline.

“Guess they’re on the bayside,” Dave says. He looks down as they walk, hoping to spot something in the flotsam along the high-water line. After a while, he finds a starfish.

“Is it alive?” Cindy asks.

“I have no idea, but I’ll throw it back just in case.” Dave hurls the creature into an advancing wave. Then they both turn and quickly resume walking. Neither wants to look back to see if the starfish went out with the tide or washed back up.



This book is an interesting, intriguing, realistic read full of family drama!!

This book follows main characters, Dave and Cindy as they navigate the ups and downs of their marriage, careers, relationships, and life in New York City.

This book starts off a bit slow, with a strange, awkward guys night out at a gentleman’s club.  While this felt a bit clunky and distasteful, the book does quickly pick up, and shifts to the focus of the main story of Dave and Cindy.

This book captures quite an array of compelling, well-described characters that all strongly support and move the story along.

As someone with strong ties to the retail world, I must admit I enjoyed the P&G story line full of new products, setting up planograms, difficult store managers, dealing with adversary vendors, etc.

I think many older aged readers will enjoy reminiscing down memory lane as this book takes them on a journey through a time when life was simpler and less complicated.  And of course, revel in memories of when ketchup was only $0.89, two beers plus tip could be covered in a $5.00 bill, VIP lap dances only cost $10.00 per song, or $15.00 for two, and a $0.50 off Tide coupon was a treasured deal lol.  None of those prices even come close to what they cost today!!

The writing tone of this book is strongly male dominated with many slights at females in the workplace and male chauvinistic attitudes.  Furthermore, this book is full of strongly rated adult content, including but not limited to profanity, drinking and driving, illicit drugs, open relationships, extensive sexual content, and other crude references, etc.  Fair warning, this book may be uncomfortable for some readers.

This book is divided up into fifteen longer sized chapters that span across 267 pages.

At this time, this book is not part of a book series.  Therefore, this book can easily be read as a standalone.

All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it!!  I think all family drama genre readers and nostalgic fans will like this book too!!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!!
