Christopher Moore on Twisted Realities and History with Humor (Rebroadcast)

Christopher Moore's latest irreverent tale takes readers on a romp through nineteenth-century Paris, in the company of the most famous artists of the time.

He's a little John Steinbeck and a little bit Jules Verne; a smidge Shakespeare, and a heaping helping of Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Robbins, and Douglas Adams. His irreverent novels include comedic takes on death, Shakespeare, marine biology, and the life of Jesus Christ. His latest tale is a romp through nineteenth-century Paris in the company of the most famous artists of the time, all seeking fame, fortune, and an elusive and coveted pigment known as "sacred blue."
