When it comes to the realities of aging, Joan Didion and Nora Ephron have documented the ups and downs of getting older with a mix of grim humor and profound insight. Now, author Jane Juska adds her unique voice to the conversation with her audiobook, The Last Thing to Go. In this candid and witty memoir, Juska fearlessly tackles topics society often shies away from, delving into the complexities of sex, self-image, and the universal human need for connection. With her sharp eye for detail and unapologetic opinions on gender issues, Juska offers a fresh and unfiltered perspective on life in the later years.

About the Author

Jane Juska was born in 1933 and grew up in small-town Ohio. She pursued her education at the University of Michigan and the University of California - Berkeley, eventually becoming a high school English teacher for 33 years. Juska's journey took a turn when she took an unorthodox approach to finding companionship. Placing an ad in the New York Review of Books, Juska boldly declared her desire to have meaningful sexual experiences with a man before turning 68. To her surprise, the ad catapulted her into the spotlight and led to the publication of her bestselling memoir, A Round-Heeled Woman. Two more books, Unaccompanied Women and Mrs. Bennet Has Her Say, followed, solidifying Juska's place as a talented writer unafraid to explore taboo subjects. Currently, she resides in the mountains near her family and continues to write, with a particular focus on her experiences with aging.
