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.
