Linnet Moss is a college professor who writes fiction in her spare time. She adores old books, new books, cats, frogs, miniature books, wine, Trappist ales, tea from Ceylon, vegetarian gourmet food, London, Rome, Art Deco skyscrapers, and beautiful men. Not necessarily in that order.
For years, Linnet yearned to read sex scenes inspired by Brillat-Savarin’s Physiology of Taste, or Alexander Pope’s Windsor Forest, or a certain Playboy cartoon in which an artist paints a necktie onto a bare-breasted model. At last her dreams have come true, though she had to write them herself.
