Coyote Blue (Paperback)
|Author: Christopher Moore|

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.
"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."
