Selena Jardines's Garden
by Selena Jardine
It all began over lunch on the grass.
Uther said, "Remember, 'Déjeuner Sur l'Herbe' shocked people because it was set in modern times, not because the women were undressed."
I replied, "Well... it was sort of the combination of the two. Dressed modern men picnicking with naked women. As opposed to naked antique Greek fellas picnicking with equally antique Greek sweet young things, or else clothed modern men picnicking with clothed modern women. Or whatever.
"My great-grandfather used to say, 'You can call me anything you like, just call me in time for dinner.' Give me déjeuner, that's all I ask."
The rest is history.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Author, French Professor, Valkyrie…
Selena Jardine had an extremely proper and altogether admirable family upbringing. She went on, flawlessly, to an over-educated and entirely respectable adulthood and professional life. She developed a reputation as a perfectly well-mannered lady. And then she spoiled it all by starting to write smut, and loving it. Dear, dear.
Selena’s stories range from the tender to the nastily wicked. She prefers lemon to sugar, if you catch her drift. She spends her time reading voraciously, writing this kind of thing, and forming the minds of impressionable youths. Really.
