Staff Reviews


Vulgar, baudy, endearing and hilarious. Christopher Moore brings his twisted sense of humor to new heights with this retelling of King Lear. Told through the eyes of the King's fool, Pocket of Dog Snogging, Fool unleashes Shakespeare from literary snobbery and lets him run wild in the streets.

March 2009 Indie Next List


“Christopher Moore's take on Shakespeare's King Lear is full of sharp, snappy wit (as well as a bloody ghost, bodily fluids, bawdy humor, a bit of graphic violence, and a great deal of sex). In the end, it is rib-achingly hilarious.”
— Jackie Blem, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO

Description


“Hilarious, always inventive, this is a book for all, especially uptight English teachers, bardolaters, and ministerial students.”
Dallas Morning News

Fool—the bawdy and outrageous New York Times bestseller from the unstoppable Christopher Moore—is a hilarious new take on William Shakespeare’s King Lear…as seen through the eyes of the foolish liege’s clownish jester, Pocket. A rousing tale of “gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity,” Fool joins Moore’s own Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel, and You Suck! as modern masterworks of satiric wit and sublimely twisted genius, prompting Carl Hiassen to declare Christopher Moore “a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word.”
