In Christopher Moore's ingenious debut novel, we meet one of the
most memorably mismatched pairs in the annals of literature. The
good-looking one is one-hundred-year-old ex-seminarian and "roads"
scholar Travis O'Hearn. The green one is Catch, a demon with a
nasty habit of eating most of the people he meets. Behind the fake
Tudor faÃ§ade of Pine Cove, California, Catch sees a four-star
buffet. Travis, on the other hand, thinks he sees a way of ridding
himself of his toothy traveling companion. The winos, neo-pagans,
and deadbeat Lotharios of Pine Cove, meanwhile, have other ideas.
And none of them is quite prepared when all hell breaks loose.
