The Grass Skirt

2 Oct

The Grass Skirt (Amazon) by Jun Baran

The Grass Skirt is an account of the infamous adventures of Oliver, an american teacher, in Tahiti of the old days. Oliver found he himself had many lessons to learn from the wanton women of the distant island.



Dear Uncle, I have reached Tahiti safely. I took a buggy to the DeMusset home. My duty will be to tutor her niece Theresa in English. Tahiti is lovely, and I will enjoy my stay. I hope that the family is well,

Your loving nephew, Oliver.


“Charmed, Madame,” I kissed the hand of Madame DeMusset.

“You are most welcome here, Oliver,” Madame said, with the trace of a smile.

“Hello,” her niece Theresa smiled broadly, extending her hand to me.

 “How was your trip?” Madame was an attractive French woman of middle years, with a lined face. She was a little plump, with dark hair and eyes.

“We made good time. The winds were favorable,” I replied. I had arrived in Tahiti yesterday, and came to the estate of the DeMusset family by buggy. I had been led to a small bungalow near the main house by a housekeeper, and helped to unpack. The bungalow had a large porch, a small kitchen, a bedroom and a setting room. The furniture in the bungalow was rattan and bamboo.

I had been offered the position of tutor by Madame DeMusset. I would tutor her niece, Theresa, in English and German.

“Would you like some wine?” Theresa gave me a glass, and asked me to take a chair on the veranda. Theresa had the dark hair of her aunt – she also had a full figure. “Where were you born, Oliver?” the young woman asked. I explained that I was from New York, with a degree from Yale. I had been recommended by the Dean at Yale for this position on Tahiti. I would tutor in English and German, and help with the correspondence. The DeMusset Pearl operation did a great deal of business with American and European firms.
