Golden Years

Andrew M. Greeley. Forge, $24.95 (302pp) ISBN 978-0-7653-0338-7

The Irish-American O'Malley clan ushers in the 1980s in Golden Years, the sixth volume in Andrew M. Greeley's unabashedly old-fashioned (though curiously sex-laced) series. Chucky O'Malley, a former ambassador, and his doting wife, Rosemarie, a New Yorker writer, weather the crises of friends and family-including the death of Chucky's father-with their usual grace. The true subject of Greeley's series is Chucky and Rosemarie's blissful marriage, which is as passionate as ever as they enter their 50s in this latest installment. .
