Jane Juska könyvei a rukkolán


Jane Juska - Szex ​és nyugdíj
Jane ​Juska 67 éves nő, aki ha nyáron végigmegy az utcán, gyönyörűséggel nézegeti a rövidnadrágos férfiakat. Aki imádja őket mindenestül, legyen a péniszük egyenes vagy görbe, hosszú vagy rövid, vastag vagy vékony. Jane Juska bátor asszony, aki 67. születésnapja küszöbén döbben rá: elég volt a sokéves magányból. S mivelhogy nemcsak a szívében, de az ágyában is egyedül érzi magát, szexpartnert kereső hirdetést ad fel az egyik legnevesebb New York-i lapban. Jane Juska gesztusa és könyve sokak szerint botrányos. Pedig csak őszinte. Ezért is oly sikeres szerte a világban ez a szexéhes fiatal csődörökről, házasságukból kikacsintó érett férfiakról, és gyengédségre vágyó idősödő urakról, valamint az elveszettnek hitt és megtalált testi szerelemről szóló humoros, egyben torokszorító kötet.

Jane Juska - Unaccompanied Women
“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.

Jane Juska - The Last Thing To Go
Joan Didion and Nora Ephron have both written, by turns grimly and hilariously, about the indignities of getting older. Now comes Jane Juska, laying bare (literally) everything no one has yet said about life in the later years. With her characteristic wit, unsparing eye for detail, and famously frank opinions on gender issues, Juska, author of the best-selling memoir A Round-Heeled Woman, talks sex, the ups and downs of body parts well below the neck, and the indomitable human need for connection, whatever a woman’s age. Jane Juska was born in 1933, was reared in small-town Ohio, and grew up at the University of Michigan and the University of California Berkeley. She taught high school English for 33 years, taught college and prison classes for 5, and then went in search of men to give her aid and comfort. Her ad in the New York Review of Books—“Before I turn 68, I would like to have a lot of sex with a man I like”—brought her undreamed-of success. She wrote two books about that search: A Round-Heeled Woman and Unaccompanied Women. Since then, her essays have appeared in Vogue and Self, in various anthologies, and online at the Huffington Post and wowOwow. Her book reviews appear in the San Francisco Chronicle. Recently, she left her Berkeley home for life in the mountains next door to her grandchildren and their parents. She has at last completed a novel, Mrs. Bennet Has Her Say, about Pride and Prejudice’s foolish mother as she might have been at 15. At present she is working on a last-ditch memoir about aging.

Jane Juska - A ​Round-heeled Woman
“Round-heeled” ​is an old-fashioned label for a woman who is promiscuous—someone who nowadays might be called “easy.” It’s a surprising way for a cultured English teacher 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 poignant, funny, utterly unique memoir. Jane Juska is a smart, energetic divorcée who decided she’d been celibate too long, and placed the following personal ad in her favorite newspaper, The New York Review of Books: Before I turn 67—next March—I would like to have a lot of sex with a man I like. If you want to talk first, Trollope works for me. This closing reference was a nod to her favorite author, of course. The response was overwhelming, and Juska took a sabbatical from teaching to meet some of the men who had replied. And since her ad made it clear that she wasn’t expecting just hand-holding, her dates zipped from first base to home plate in record time. Juska is a totally engaging, perceptive writer, funny and frank about her exploits. It’s high time someone revealed the fact that older single people are as eager for sex and intimacy as their younger counterparts. Jane Juska’s brave, honest memoir will probably raise eyebrows and blood pressure, but it will undoubtedly appeal to the very large audience of grown-up readers who will be fascinated and inspired by her daring adventure.

Jane Juska - Szex ​és nyugdíj 2.
„Mielőtt ​hatvanhét éves leszek, szeretnék sokat szexelni" - írta társkereső hirdetésében Jane Juska, és a legkülönfélébb ajánlatokat kapta. Humoros és egyben torokszorító tapasztalatait az elveszettnek hitt és megtalált testi szerelemről Szex és nyugdíj című bestsellerében írta meg, amely a nyár könyvszenzációja volt. Öt év telt el a sorsdöntő hirdetés óta. Juska kénytelen volt belátni, hogy látványos érzelmi és szexuális sikerei ellenére egyelőre nem találta meg azt a férfit, aki nemcsak az ágyát, de az életét is megosztaná vele. Tovább keresi a tökéletes szeretőt... Bölcsességgel és szeretettel átitatott könyve ékes bizonyíték arra, hogy nemcsak a fiataloknak fontos a szexuális gyönyör és a tartós kapcsolat, hanem azoknak is, akik legalább lélekben megőrizték fiatalságukat.
