We hope this gets to you, since we no longer have your phone number. The Mosses will be in town this June with Michael's wife and children, and Kirsten is having a party for them on June 11th. We would like you and Andy and his family to come. If you get this, please RSVP Kirsten at 283-1997 or me (Lee) at 254-7637. (We assume you heard about Michael).

Thanks for writing 'unaccompanied women'. It is insightful, funny, sad, deals with real-life issues, it is human -- a good read.

To Jane Juska
Your book has circled amongst my friends, and our common reaction was "Why did she feel she needed to publish this tale?
And if she realy did feel the need to publish it, why on earth did she accompany it with her name and photo?"
To spit, burp, pass wind, urinate, defecate and fornicate are normal, healthy parts of living..........in private.
Do it in public, and it becomes quite disgusting.
Your tale was one to be discrete about, not to crow from the roof tops.

Jane, read your article in Vogue, August 2008, "The Other Woman at 75". I am also the other woman at 75. Your article has helped me enjoy the good times as well as tolerate the separations and consequences of being the other woman.I keep your article by my bedside to read when I need some help with this situation. After reading your article, I have some questions for you.Is it possible for you to answer my email? Thank you for your very helpful advice with a situation I have been involved 24 years. We have tried to separate and discontinue this relatioship but without success.

Tried this once before and it did not post so perhaps I did something wrong. Thought I would give it another shot. Jane, I very much enjoyed the wit, humor and intelligent insight in both of your books. I am a resident of Sylvania Oh know your family and am very familiar with Archbold. Do you have the courage to do a book signing in Northwest Ohio? I hope so.

Dear Jane, first of all sorry for my english, I'm an italian woman of 53 and I enjoyed both your books. You are a very special friend for me also I never met you. I'd like to know how is your life now. Did love make the scene?
With best wishes from Rome

Ms. Juska: I sit in the biography section at my local library and in between reading whatever current book I'm reading, I look up to see the possibilities all around me of people I 'should' want to emulate or aspire to be. First, it was the color of your book that caught my eye. Then the title. Then the clipping. What I found between the pages was truly an adventure I never expected! Thank you! I've always felt out of sinc or that my nature was too out there for my own good. But you've shown me, once again (if I'd only listen!) that indeed our lives are truly our own to experience, and why 'suffer at the hands of others', living in ways that seem 'appropriate'. I know for sure that I don't possess your guts to post any advertisements, but I will allow myself to be more open to possibilities. Thank you once again! (I'm 42, and have already felt like I've wanted to call it a day when it comes to relationships. I'll leave the door cracked.)

Brilliant article in Sundays Telegraph (UK), can't wait to buy the book - but the subject is also of great interest...
If Jane reads these, I would be keen to correspond [UK Brit', no perve, straight, aged!, etc:] 'Daze Off' (on MSN Messenger).

Hello Ms. Juska. My name is Patrick White. I'm a reporter with the Columbia News Service, a features story wire that feeds the New York Times News Service. I'm writing about the sexual revolution among people over 65. I'm wondering if I can ask you some questions about responses your writing has received and how it has really given society a good shake when it comes to sex and relationships in old age. Please email me if you get the chance. firstname.lastname@example.org
