A Round-Heeled Woman by Jane Juska
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Round-heeled" is an old-fashioned term for a promiscuous woman of easy virtue. It's a surprising way for a respectable English teacher of a certain age, with a passion for the novels of Anthony Trollope, to describe herself, but then that's just the first of many surprises to be found in this funny, poignant memoir. Inspired by Eric Rohmer's film "Autumn Tale", Jane Juska, a smart, energetic divorcee, decided she'd been celibate too long, and placed a personal ad in "The New York Review of Books". The response was overwhelming, and Juska took a sabatical from teaching to meet some of the men who replied. Since her ad made it clear that she wasn't expecting just hand-holding, her dates zipped from first base to the full monty in record time. Juska, in documenting her exploits, reveals the fact that older single people are just as eager for sex and intimacy as their younger counterparts.
