“Christopher Moore is a very sick man, in the very best sense of that word.”
—Carl Hiassen

“[Moore’s novels] deftly blend surreal, occult, and even science-fiction doings with laugh-out-loud satire of contemporary culture.”
Washington Post

“If there’s a funnier writer out there, step forward.”

Absolutely nothing is sacred to Christopher Moore. The phenomenally popular, New York Times bestselling satirist whom the Atlanta Journal-Constitution calls, “Stephen King with a whoopee cushion and a double-espresso imagination” has already lampooned Shakespeare, San Francisco vampires, marine biologists, Death…even Jesus Christ and Santa Claus! Now, in his latest masterpiece, Sacré Bleu, the immortal Moore takes on the Great French Masters. A magnificent “Comedy d’Art” from the author of Lamb, Fool, and Bite Me, Moore’s Sacré Bleu is part mystery, part history (sort of), part love story, and wholly hilarious as it follows a young baker-painter as he joins the dapper  Henri Toulouse-Lautrec on a quest to unravel the mystery behind the supposed “suicide” of Vincent van Gogh.

Christopher Moore is the author of fourteen previous novels, includingLamb,The Stupidest Angel,Fool,Sacré Bleu,A Dirty Job, andThe Serpent of Venice. He lives in San Francisco, California.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Moore, so good Weird and true to Moore's books, funny and inappropriate. This book takes place in Paris in the time of the impressionist and post-impressionist era. The characters are fantastic and the story is interesting.
