Christopher Moore is No Fool!

One of my favorite books from last year has just appeared in paperback: Fool, by Christopher Moore. The book is a Christopher-Mooreian take on Shakespeare's King Lear, with all that you might imagine that entails. I wrote about it briefly before it came out last year. Moore is the author of eleven other novels, including Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, The Island of the Sequined Love Nun, and Bite Me: A Love Story (which will be published in hardcover next month).

If you're looking for something to take the edge off of winter, something that will make you laugh until tears are streaming down your face, Fool is the book for you! "Grand wit and belly-busting mirth." "A wickedly good time." "Exuberantly, tirelessly, brazenly profane." "A cheeky and ribald romp." How can you resist? I couldn't. And I'm glad I didn't!
