“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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Zany…Sacré Bleu is a consistently compelling blend of love story, mystery, and ‘what if?’ art-history lesson.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “A mind-bending tribute to artists, the creative process, and the color blue…Wildly entertaining…A sly examination of art, inspiration, everyday magic, and some seriously over-caffeinated painters.”

    Seattle Times

  • “Another exceedingly bizarre, often raucous, and consistently delightful journey into the sweetly demented mind of novelist Christopher Moore.”

    Philadelphia Inquirer

  • “Contains the rare combination of poetry and humor; where one moment you find yourself rereading a passage for its sublime imagery, and the next, you are grinning over a well-placed wisecrack…An excellent novel.”

    Dallas News

  • “Mingling comedy and mystery, Moore crafts an intricate story that teases the reader with numerous twists and bawdy humor…An imaginative and amusing look at the Impressionist era, and Moore’s prose is fresh and engaging.”


  • “Moore set out to write a book about the color blue. What he ended up with is 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…A worthy read.”

    Library Journal

  • “Moore’s humor is, as ever, sweetly juvenile, but his arty comedy also captures the courage and rebellion of the Impressionists with an exultant joie de vivre.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A Los Angeles Times Bestseller
  • Selected for the April 2012 Indie Next List

Listener Opinions

    " It's good. Typical Moore. A lot of laugh-out-loud funny parts, though somethings do fall short or seem to be out of place. He really did his history and had me looking up a lot of painters and paintings. "

    " I love Christopher Moore's wacky funny take on real life events that he puts his personal sarcastic stamp on. The age of Impressionists in Paris is a particular fondess of mine and I loved that Henri Toulous-Lautrec was a main character. I bet the man truely was much like his portrayal in the book. The mystical/shamanistic side of the Colorman and the Muse was a little out there but this author is known for pushing the edges in that arena. A fun artsy read that would definately be enjoyed by art enthusiasts with a sense of humor. My favorite line, "Penis". To the point for sure! "

    " Christopher Moore is the soul of funny. "

    " This was bizarre, but I admire the creativity and the satire of the art. "
