Venice, a really long time ago . . . Pocket of Dog Snogging, the irresistibly mischievous hero of Fool, finds himself in a spot of bother, having been lured to a dark dungeon by cunning plotters. Rather than enjoying a bottle of rare wine and a young lady of even rarer beauty as promised, Pocket finds himself naked, chained, and left to die in a watery cell. Just as he thinks it can''t get any worse, he feels something slither against his thigh and realizes he''s not alone-someone or something is there in the dark with him . . .

Once again, New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore illuminates the absurdity of the human condition in this satiric Venetian gothic that channels William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe (with a little Marco Polo thrown in for good measure) as only he can.

Editorial Reviews

"Fans of Fool will be overjoyed to rejoin Pocket and company . . . for their latest adventure, and newcomers will find that Shakespeare isn''t nearly as dry and dusty as they thought, at least not when Moore is at the helm. (Library Journal (starred review) on THE SERPENT OF VENICE)
