Overview

Morality Tale: A Novel by Sylvia Brownrigg


Morality Tale is a novel about the triangular complications of a modern marriage and the comedy that flows from them. When the elusive but exciting Richard (an envelope salesman with a nice layperson’s line in Zen philosophies) meets this novel’s narrator, he offers her a friendly escape from her own daunting domestic life.

Burdened by her husband’s ongoing negotiations with his angry ex-wife, the strains of looking after two stepchildren, and the lingering ghost of her own past betrayals, she finds that the life of a “second marryer” leaves much to be desired.

As her friendship develops with Richard, so grows the shadow cast over her marriage by his presence, and when they make a late, illicit bay crossing together on a ferryboat, the story gathers momentum under California’s Mount Tamalpais. There, in the fabled Golden State, Sylvia Brownrigg shows how even a layperson’s Zen can lead to some important revelations about the need to look forward, not back.

Told with unwavering honesty and wit, Morality Tale explores what it means to be married a second time around—and the crucial universal truth that change is often the key to staying together.
