Something to Look Forward To

Calling all fans of Christopher Moore! His newest book, Fool, takes on Shakespeare's King Lear. It is a bawdy tale with "gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity, as well as non-traditional grammar, split infinitives, and the odd wank." Fans of Moore's previous work - including Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal; The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove; The Stupidest Angel; Bloodsucking Fiends; and You Suck - have a real treat in store: it is wipe-tears-from-your-eyes funny. Best of all, it will be published in February, a particularly bleak and dreary month all the way around, so Fool will be the perfect tonic!

  1. O boy, O boy!! He's one of my very favorites, and I've adopted him in my local (Fairbanks) public library's Adopt-an-Author program.
    Thanks for the warning!
    Very best, J
