[mild wear to book, spine slightly turned; DJ worn at edges/corners, torn at top hinges, various small chips/tears]. A novel in which "twelve people, strangers to each other except for husbands and wives, are brought together in a California motel to experience today's newest form of psychotherapy, the 'marathon' or '300- year weekend.' Old and young, married and single, black and white, they spend the entire weekend with a psychologist in a non-stop truth game, with only a few hours respite each night for sleeping." A mainstream novel by an author (who went through a "sensitivity weekend" experience himself in 1964) best known for his science fiction -- most of which came before this book, and none of which is mentioned or even alluded to in the biographical jacket blurb.
