Product Details


“A brilliant, hilarious, addictively readable reimagining of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice…Side-splittingly funny, irreverent, and provocative.”—Chicago Tribune

“As we have come to expect, Jane Juska’s wit and insight once again shows us our foibles and humanity while entertaining us on every page.”—Kelly Corrigan, author of Glitter and Glue
Mrs. Bennett Has Her Say is, like its author, uproarious and savvy and wild. If Jane Austen had been allowed to write about sex, I’d like to think this is how she would have done it: with irreverence and wit, showing us how sexual politics might set not just a marriage, but an entire family, on an irreversible course. A delight on every level.”—Rebecca Makkai, author of The Borrower
Mrs. Bennet Has Her Say is the witty and ribald mother-from-hell prequel that fans of Jane Austen have been waiting for.”—Mark Haskell Smith, author of Raw: A Love Story
“Funny and irreverent (a trademark of Jane Juska). Mrs. Bennet Has Her Say is an intimate look into the marriage of literature’s most mismatched couple.  I loved it!  A lot!  If it goes to series, I want in.  I’ll learn the accent.”—Sharon Gless

Praise for A Round-Heeled Woman

“Feisty, charming, moving, and wise, this page-turner of a memoir proves that life for a woman—sexual and otherwise—hardly stops at thirty-nine.”—Cathi Hanauer, editor of The Bitch in the House

“Juska writes well about the sex . . . but even better about the seductions, which take on the luster of years served. Expressive and touching: Readers will be rooting for Juska to get all that she wants.”—Kirkus Reviews

“There’s something universal in [Juska’s] love affair with the written word.”—Publishers Weekly

“[A] thoroughly engaging memoir . . . Refreshingly honest, remarkably candid.”—Booklist
