Houston, promotion director of the publishing house Andrew, McMeel & Parker, is among the rising number of women married to younger men. Divorced at age 35, she chose for her next husband ""Brant,' a man nine years her junior. Their union led Houston to interview 40 couples in similar circumstances (statistics show an increase of 67% in 13 years of older wives/younger husbands.) The personal stories related here are impressive, told by lovers of various backgrounds across the country who chanced criticism. Some women, like Lillian at 72, needed support from friends to accept 57-year-old John's proposal. Ellen, 39, and David, 25, say they now laugh at the gossipand their defensive reactionsabout their ``odd'' partnership when they wed. There are many revealing facets to this book on the switch frrm the long-accepted affairs between older men and younger women. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; author tour. (October)
