Description

Christopher Moore is a very sick man, in the very best sense of that word. Carl Hiassen

Moore's novels] deftly blend surreal, occult, and even science-fiction doings with laugh-out-loud satire of contemporary culture. Washington Post

If there's a funnier writer out there, step forward. Playboy

Absolutely nothing is sacred to Christopher Moore. The phenomenally popular, New York Times bestselling satirist whom the Atlanta Journal-Constitution calls, Stephen King with a whoopee cushion and a double-espresso imagination has already lampooned Shakespeare, San Francisco vampires, marine biologists, Death even Jesus Christ and Santa Claus Now, in his latest masterpiece, Sacre Bleu, the immortal Moore takes on the Great French Masters. A magnificent Comedy d Art from the author of Lamb, Fool, and Bite Me, Moore's Sacre Bleu is part mystery, part history (sort of), part love story, and wholly hilarious as it follows a young baker-painter as he joins the dapper Henri Toulouse-Lautrec on a quest to unravel the mystery behind the supposed suicide of Vincent van Gogh.
