Main description:

It is the color of the Virgin Mary's cloak, a dazzling pigmentdesired by artists, an exquisite hue infused with danger,adventure, and perhaps even the super natural. It is . . .Sacré Bleu

In July 1890, Vincent van Gogh went into a cornfield andshot himself. Or did he? Why would an artist at the heightof his creative powers try to take his life . . . and then walk amile to a doctor's house? Who was the crooked little "colorman" Vincent claimed was stalking him? And why had Vincentrecently become terrified of a certain shade of blue?

These questions confront baker-turned-painter Lucien Lessardand bon vivant Henri Toulouse-Lautrec as they seek the truthof their friend's untimely death, a quest that will lead them on asurreal odyssey through late 19th-century Paris.

A delectable confection of intrigue, passion, and arthistory—with can-can girls, baguettes, and fine Frenchcognac thrown in for good measure—Sacré Bleu is anothermasterpiece from the one, the only, Christopher Moore.

Review quote:

“[A] delightfully ribald romp.”

Review quote:

“[A] marvelous, tongue-in-cheek, mythical explanation of the artistic urge... brought vividly to life.”

Review quote:

“[A]nother exceedingly bizarre, often raucous, and consistently delightful journey into the sweetly demented mind of novelist Christopher Moore.”

Review quote:

“[A]surprisingly complex novel full of love, death, art, and mystery....Don’t let Moore’s quirky characters and bawdy language fool you. His writing has depth, and his peculiar take on the impressionists will reel you in....this is a worthy read. ”

Review quote:

“[H]ilarious, educational, and original. . . . [I]t is difficult to put the book down, for there are astonishing new developments on every page.”

Review quote:

“[W]all-to-wall, farcical fornicating and fighting…a jolly good time can be had.”

Review quote:

Sacre Bleu is big fun.”

Review quote:

“A laugh-a-page novel that’s raunchy and irreverent.”

Review quote:

“A page-turner…. Your ‘Lear’ can be rusty or completely unread to appreciate this new perspective on the Shakespearean tragedy. That is if you enjoy a whole lot of silly behind the scenes of your tragedies.”

Review quote:

“A raunchy slapstick comedy of young vampires in love . . . Moore is in top form, and this reviewer laughed all the way through this page-turner. Enthusiastically recommended.”

Review quote:

“A vampire comedy that’s witty, bright and funny.”

Review quote:

“An instant classic . . . terrific, funny and poignant.

Review quote:

“Art history is playfully--and perilously--rewrtitten in this ambitious novel....fans of Moore’s mix of wit and slapstick will be pleased.”

Review quote:

“Can Moore find the funny in gloomy Van Gogh? If anybody can-can, count on Moore.”

Review quote:

“Captivating . . . Those familiar with Moore’s work will love this rich story, which is full of gleefully anachronistic behavior and language--often pun-based--coming from artists we ordinarily revere.”

Review quote:

“Christopher Moore’s new novel blends diligently researched art history smoothly with his fevered, fiendish imagination.”

Review quote:

“Funny, literate, smart and sexy, all at once!”

Review quote:

“I can’t emphasize enough how funny BITE ME is.”

Review quote:

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

Review quote:

“In

“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.”
Playboy

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.
