October Featured Author: Christopher Moore


“Stephen King with a whoopee cushion and a double-espresso imagination.”  – Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Christopher Moore.

Quirky, witty, bestselling absurdist fiction author Christopher Moore is the October Featured Author. Born in Toledo, Ohio in 1958, as an avid reader and only child, Moore entertained himself with his imagination. He put this to work in his 13 rather unique, satirical fantasyChristopherMoore_at_Politics+Prose_4-7-10_by_Cy_Guy novels. They typically depict a conflicted everyman’s character struggling through supernatural or extraordinary circumstances. Since his first novel in 1992, Practical Demonkeeping, Moore has achieved cult status with his lust lizards and vampires. His latest book, Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d’Art, is a bit different than his previous books.  Part mystery, part pseudo history, part love story, it unravels the mystery behind the supposed “suicide” of Vincent van Gogh.

Side note: I had no idea what to expect from Moore before I read A Dirty Job, nor was I prepared, which I discovered just a few pages in. But I found it highly entertaining and unique. Very unique.
