reviewed Men and the Girls on
Hilarious British comedy that compares two marriages in which aging, waning husbands contend with the ascent and the restlessness of their much younger wives.

I enjoyed this twist on the May-December romance with a look at these relationships down the line. Now in their sixties, the older men in this book at looking back at their lives and relationships and thinking about where they are.

I enjoyed the secondary characters very much and how they interacted and influenced the lives of these couples. Not what I expected, and sweet.

from the back:
"Popular Brithish TV personality Hugh Hunter has begun feeling resentful toward his much younger, seemingly perfect wife, Julia. For while his own star is on the wane, Julia's is rapidly ascending. James Mallow, a teacherm has shared eight blissful years with Kate Bain, his junior by a good quarter century. But his devoted longtime partner appears restless these days.
Then a freak rush hour accident knocks a fiercely independent spinster from her bicycle-an event that will have a profound and wildly unanticipated impact on two unothodox unions"
