This third farcical vampire love story from a "New York Times"-bestselling author is bitingly funny and poised to reach the legions of Moore fans who are thirsting for another rollicking, hilarious read.
From the Publisher:
Hip vampires Jody, Tommy, Abby and Steve have to find Chet--Abby's vampiric cat, who is stalking the streets with his meowing minions and getting bigger, and more like a human, every day--but first they must contend with three very old vampires with a bone to pick. By the best-selling author of You Suck. Reprint. A best-selling book. 150,000 first printing.
Annotation:
This book-candy read follows up Christopher Moore's YOU SUCK, with another scary-funny adventure for gothy Abby Normal and her boyfriend Steve Wong, along with sexy vamps Jody and Tommy. Abby's blood-sucking cat is loose and wreaking havoc, and if Abby doesn't find the feline first, somebody else might--maybe the vampire-hunting night-shift workers of the Safeway or a pair of police detectives or the self-anointed "Emperor of San Francisco" or--even more problematically--some other vengeance-seeking vampires. BITE ME: A LOVE STORY is over the top, a riotous read.
Author Bio
Christopher Moore
Christopher Moore--the author of PRACTICAL DEMONKEEPING, BLOODSUCKING FIENDS, ISLAND OF THE SEQUINED LOVE NUN, and LAMB, among other novels--is often referred to as a "cult" writer, presumably because his books feature absurdist subjects and plots. (LAMB, for example, is a revisionist chronicle of the life of Jesus--as told by his friend Biff--and BLOODSUCKING FIENDS is a vampire tale that manages to involve frozen-turkey bowling.) Moore's book frequently land on the bestseller lists, however, making the "cult" label largely inaccurate. "I'm just working on getting a really giant cult," he once quipped to an interviewer. "We're saving up for a compound." The son of a highway patrolman and a department-store clerk, Moore was born and raised in Ohio. He majored in anthropology at Ohio State University before moving to California to study at the Brooks Institute of Photography. He supported himself with a variety of jobs, including roofer, grocery-store cashier, motel clerk, and factory worker. "Then all of a sudden, I was thirty," he has said. "I was supposed to be famous by the time I was thirty, right? Well, I wasn't. I was a waiter. . . . So I thought I better write a book." Inspired by the humor Douglas Adams had brought to science fiction with THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, Moore took a similar approach to the horror genre. The result was PRACTICAL DEMONKEEPING, which features a people-eating demon who terrorizes a small California town. Published in 1992, it was quickly optioned by Disney, and while he reportedly received a six-figure advance, a film version has not yet materialized. Moore is widely considered to be friendly and approachable, and his readings consistently draw large, enthusiastic crowds.

Praise

"Writing, or reading, a gruesome story about a trans-species vampiric takeover of San Francisco is not for the squeamish, and Moore composes his latest novel, BITE ME, with characteristic, uninhibited vulgarity." - Ilya Arbatman 04/11/2010
