A Round-Heeled Woman- My Late Life Adventures in Sex and Romance
Author: Jane Juska
Contrary to the lurid title (a "round-heeled woman" was once slang for a prostitute), Juska is a semiretired English teacher with refined tastes: Trollope novels , opera and museums.

I saw this author interviewed on TV when this book was first published. She seemed an interesting woman, very nice. She seems to have been very honest about her life and some of it wasn't all that commendable - her marriage, motherhood. Her teaching career was interesting - best chap. of the book was about teaching prisoners at San Quintin. Her approach to getting some sexual experiences seemed to me to be unrealistic, but interesting.

This was a fun book. It was interesting to read about an older woman who is on the dating market.

Unbelievable as it might seem, Jane Juska published a personal ad in the NY Times Magazine asking for a sexual partner for some romantic adventures. She got plenty of what she asked for and had a lot of good times plus a little heartache.
The amazing part of all of this is that she was a woman past her mid sixties at the time. The INCREDIBLE thing is that she wasn't murdered,raped, or even taken advantage of through all of this. Her memoir is both funny and sad in places, but always interesting. I can't say that I would ever, EVER, have the guts to do what she did, but I found myself hoping she'd have a wonderful time with all of these men, and satisfy that longing she obviously had. I think she did.
