Christopher Moore is the author of fifteen previous novels, including Secondhand Souls, Sacre Bleu, A Dirty Job, and Lamb. He lives in San Francisco, California.
It takes a certain amount of guts and wild abandon to recast a Shakespeare comedy as a hard-boiled detective story, but if anyone can pull it off, it's master satirist Moore, whose gift for funny business apparently knows no bounds. . . . A welcome return of a fan-favorite character in a romp of a tale that will delight not only mystery buffs but also fantasy fanatics, and, of course, Bard lovers. -- <em>Booklist </em><strong>(starred review)</strong> Moore's trademark humor is on full display with his cast of strangely lovable characters. This is Shakespeare with an edge and will not only appeal to Moore's fans but garner new ones. -- <em>Library Journal </em>(starred review) Nobody writes mystery novels quite like Christopher Moore . . . . As hilarious as A Midsummer Night's Dream is to begin with, Moore adds a contemporary dose of sly humor that I think would impress the Bard. -- Bookpage (starred review) Buckle in for Shakespeare for Squirrels, an uproarious take on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream-transformed into a murder mystery. . . A funny, fast-paced, and wild read. -- Huffington Post Christopher Moore has written a wonderful diversion for hard times. Even Shakespeare would have appreciated the jokes. -- <em>Wall Street Journal</em> A hilariously noir tale of love, magic and murder. -- <em>USA Today</em> Manic parodist Moore...returns with a rare gift for Shakespeare fans who think A Midsummer Night's Dream would be perfect if only it were a little more madcap. . . . A kicky, kinky, wildly inventive 21st century mashup with franker language and a higher body count than Hamlet. -- <em>Kirkus Reviews</em> This cheeky homage will please lovers of Shakespeare and camp. -- <em>Publishers Weekly</em>
