You Only Get Married

Judy Markey, Author Doubleday Books $16.95 (265p) ISBN 978-0-385-24739-9
This collection of three years' articles by syndicated columnist Markey is a reprise of the bright, upbeat commentary on life in the '80s that is her trademark. For instance, she submits, with tongue in cheek, the disadvantages that accrue ``if your children are part of an increasing minority of kids living under the anachronistic and shameful conditions of (gasp!!!) an intact marriage.'' The columns consider everyday issuesmarriage, kids' allowances, holidays, growing olderfrom a pragmatic perspective, ``to commiserate, to provoke, to get the laugh gland going.'' In a serious vein, Markey makes known her warm feelings for Bill Veeck of Cleveland Indians fame and pays handsome tribute to his successful marriage. Literary Guild alternate. (Oct.)
