In July 1890, Vincent van Gogh went into a cornfield and shot himself. Or did he? Vincent’s friends, baker-turned-painter Lucien Lessard and bon vivant Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, have their doubts. Now they’re determined to answer the questions surrounding van Gogh’s untimely death—like who was the crooked little “color man” Vincent claimed was stalking him across France . . . and why had the painter recently become deathly afraid of a certain shade of blue? Ooh la la, quelle surprise, and zut alors, what follows is a surreal odyssey and brothel-crawl deep into the art world of late-nineteenth-century Paris, as the one, the only, Christopher Moore cooks up a delectable confection of intrigue, passion, and art history . . . with cancan girls, baguettes, and fine French cognac thrown in for good measure.

4.0 Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d'Art
This was great! I have been a fan for years, but these last couple of books have both been so different and unexpected. I even enjoyed all the shameless name dropping of the artists throughout.

This was my first Christopher Moore book (though I've had his books recommended to me different times).Parts I loved, other parts were ok. It's a (strange?) mix of historical/art fiction, fantasy, almost-horror, & maybe a few other styles tossed in there too. Love the parts about the history of the ...

3.0 Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d'Art
I tend to love Christopher Moore, but I wasn't feeling this book.It's about art, and color. And life and all of that good stuff. Moore made the art world a little funnier, a little sillier, and a little more interesting by introducing Sacre Bleu, a sacred color, along with a goddess, a caveman, a...
