From the master of subversive humor comes a perennial fan favorite. "Coyote Blue" introduces Sam Hunter, a 35-year-old insurance salesman who ran away from an Indian reservation at the age of 15. That life is a distant memory until Old Man Coyote enters the picture.
From the Publisher:
From master of subversive humor Christopher Moore comes a quirky, irreverent novel of love, myth, metaphysics, outlaw biking, angst, and outrageous redemption.

As a boy, he was Samson Hunts Alone -- until a deadly misunderstanding with the law forced him to flee the Crow reservation at age fifteen. Today he is Samuel Hunter, a successful Santa Barbara insurance salesman with a Mercedes, a condo, and a hollow, invented life. Then one day, destiny offers him the dangerous gift of love -- in the exquisite form of Calliope Kincaid -- and a curse in the unheralded appearance of an ancient god by the name of Coyote. Coyote, the trickster, has arrived to reawaken the mystical storyteller within Sam...and to seriously screw up his existence in the process.

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

New York Times Book Review
"California sunshine meets American Indian myth in this whimsical fable of contemporary culture shock...tautly written with a zest for the absurd and the unpredictable."

San Francisco Chronicle
"Moore excells at putting a comic spin on cosmic issues."

Philadelphia Inquirer
"Downright laugh-out-loud, can't-put-the-book-down funny ...Moore's storytelling style is reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams."
