Christopher Moore talks about his new novel Sacré Bleu

A new Christopher Moore novel is always a cause for celebration. He is one of the funniest writers in America, but his new book Sacré Bleu is something else. It's in the same vein as his earlier novels Lamb and Fool, which may not have been as outlandish and laugh out loud funny as his other books, but they veered into a zany fantastic world. Sacré Bleu involves the murder of Vincent Van Gogh, the color blue, how color was made (which honestly I never thought about until I read the book and it sounds so hard that I'm a little surprised anyone ever did it in the first place), Belle Epoque Paris and impressionist and post-impressionist art. Admittedly, it encompasses a few of my great passions (those schools of art, those artists, Paris) but it is a great book and Moore's best to date, I think. I spoke to him for Suicidegirls:
