Back Seat Book Club – Book Fifteen: Sacré Bleu

Author: Christopher Moore

Published: 2012


Plot Summary – In his latest novel, the immortal Moore takes on the Great French Masters. A magnificent “Comedy d’Art” from the author of LambFool and Bite Me, Moore’s Sacré Bleu is part mystery, part history (sort of), part love story, and wholly hilarious as it follows a young baker-painter who joins the dapper Henri Toulouse-Lautrec on a quest to unravel the mystery behind the supposed suicide of Vincent van Gogh.

Quick Thoughts

“The Painting is not shit,’ said Lucien.

‘I know,’ said Henri. ‘That was just part of the subterfuge. I am of royal lineage; subterfuge is one of the many talents we carry in our blood, along with guile and hemophilia.”
