Unaccompanied Women book. Erudite, amusing follow-up to A Round-Heeled Woman: My Late-Life Adventures in Sex and Romance, which I had never heard of but will read next

Unaccompanied Women book. Erudite, amusing follow-up to A Round-Heeled Woman: My Late-Life Adventures in Sex and Romance, which I had never heard of but will read next. Nicely done memoir about the consequences of writing a book about the results of one's personal ad (placed at age 66). Honest without being overly confessional and modest without being coy, this book is a welcome contribution to the canon of works by mature women.

Late-Life Adventures in Love, Sex and Real Estate. And so I, along with others like me, all of us unaccompanied by men of the traditional sort, became Dan’s companions

Late-Life Adventures in Love, Sex and Real Estate. CHAPTER 1. puzzle pieces. And so I, along with others like me, all of us unaccompanied by men of the traditional sort, became Dan’s companions. In public Dan and I looked like a couple-a man and perhaps his wife, perhaps his lady friend, maybe even his lover-who clearly enjoyed each other’s company.

Unaccompanied Women embraces not only Juska's continuing explorations of Eros (note to fans: her younger lover, Graham, is still on the scene) but also a blossoming literary career that catapults her from San Francisco to New York, London, and Paris.

UNACCOMPANIED WOMEN: LATE-LIFE ADVENTURES IN LOVE, SEX, AND REAL ESTATE follows on the heels of Jane Juska's best-seller A ROUND-HEELED WOMAN, surveying women's fears of growing old, being alone, and never settling down.

Not us! Jane Juska has enjoyed a blossoming literary career while remaining unaccompanied. While she has kept her eyes out for companionship, it’s on her own terms. 9. Difficult Women by Roxane Gay.

Jane Juska found literary fame late in life. She was retired and volunteering at Planned Parenthood when she wrote her 2003 book, A Round-Heeled Woman: My Late-Life Adventures in Sex and Romance. Photograph: Random House/BBC. The title came from an archaic term for a promiscuous woman.

Jane Juska at her home in Berkeley, Calif. in 2006, three years after the publication of her memoir A Round-Heeled Woman: My Late-Life Adventures in Sex and Romance. Jim Wilson/The New York Times. As Jane Juska - divorced, lonely and 66 - watched Eric Rohmer’s film Autumn Tale in 1999 in a theater in Berkeley, Calif. she was swept up by the story, in which a married woman secretly places a personal advertisement in a newspaper for a widowed friend who believes it is too late for her to find love.

As a result of what she calls 'the only stroke of genius I've ever had', Jane Juska placed a personal ad in a newspaper, that began: 'Before I turn 67 - next March - I would like to have a lot of sex with a man I like. The response was overwhelming, and it changed Jane's life. She told all in A Round-Heeled Woman, which Lynne Truss called 'the best book about sex I have read', and which shocked some, amused many and became a bestseller.

“Before I turn 67, I would like to have a lot of sex with a man I like.” This inspired personal ad from Jane Juska drew tremendous response and swept the retired teacher into a whirlwind existence she barely recognized as her own. She relayed her fun and frank exploits in the bestseller A Round-Heeled Woman. Now Juska continues her astonishing story in this much anticipated new adventure.Five years after that fateful ad, Juska has become a friend and confessor for women of all ages who confide in her their poignant, tragic, or blissful stories– unaccompanied women who are alone for now, but ever searching for intimacy. And in spite of Juska’s own success, “unaccompanied” is a description that applies to her as well. She’s still looking for a man to keep her company–not a husband, not even a partner, but simply the perfect lover, once described by Katharine Hepburn as one who “lives nearby and visits often.”Unaccompanied Women embraces not only Juska’s continuing explorations of Eros (note to fans: her younger lover, Graham, is still on the scene) but also a blossoming literary career that catapults her from San Francisco to New York, London, and Paris. At book signings, earnest men place themselves purposely at the end of the line in order to engage her in private conversations, while women linger to confess their own erotic longings and their experiences with the good, the bad, and even the ugly. All the while, Juska is coping with the unnerving possibility of losing her home, a tiny cottage in Berkeley, California–and so her search broadens and intensifies, not just for love, friendship, and sex but also for enough money to keep a roof over her head. Jane Juska shares all this richness of living in a poignant and humorous exploration of emotional terrain rarely discussed in our society. This wise and warmhearted book provides vivid evidence that the pursuit of pleasure and lasting relationships is not just for the young, but also for the young at heart.

This is the second book by Ms. Jane Juska that I've read. The first one was a big eye-opener about searching for and finding sex and love in middle age. This second one was another revelation. There are so many senior women are wanting sexual intimacy, friendship, caring, and love. So many are alone and don't want to be. But where and how can women meet appropriate men? Since it's the information age, should we alll go online to find eligible partners? I really appreciated that Ms. Juska was willing to share so much of herself, her life, her search, and her yearnings. Both books are very well-written and easy to read--but sensitive subjects to read,discuss, and share.

It's one of those books that hits you in the chest and changes your life. I was ready to buy the book in hardback and ship it off to her for an autograph! Then I found out she had passed away. I felt so disappointed. No. I don't want to follow in her footsteps but I am 65 and she stirred up so many different feelings inside of me - and I don't feel much these days. If she had a book signing I would have traveled by bus!! I really wanted to shake her hand and pat her on the back. (My favorite part that I hold dear to my heart was the love she found - her real soul mate. You'll have to read it yourself and figure out which one it is.)

This book was a disappointment. It meandered along with no point except that it sucks to be old and alone. No solutions to this problem were offered. The woman who wrote this as a sequel to "A Round Heeled Woman" clearly just needed the money.

If you liked her first book, this is a continuation of that one. I liked her first and enjoyed this one as well. I would have liked a third book about her life, but she just died, so don't think it's in the works!

Warmed over re-hash of the previous book. You can't make an entire book out of people's reaction to your previous book, can you? Ms Juska apparently thought so. But no. Very disappointing! Big letdown from Round Heeled Woman.

I think you have to be a single woman over 55 to appreciate and relate to her book. I've passed it on to a few other single women who I'm sure will enjoy and relate to her experiences, I also enjoyed her humor and writing style. This would be a fun book club choice but for single/divorced/widowed women mainly.

Boo. I rushed to buy this book without reading its reviews, just because I loved its precursor. But, as often happens with sequels, this book offered nothing new. The main, interesting story was already told in the first book, and instead the author finds herself whining about not finding love and about not having enough money to buy herself a house. Not worth reading. I still gave this book two stars simply because I like the way the author writes, in a self-deprecating humorous style, but if I were to judge solely on content, one star would do it better justice.
A fun read.
