Short Take: Secondhand Souls – Christopher Moore

Yep, he’s back on August 25th… the man Jenny Lawson calls “Disturbingly hilarious. And vice versa.” Moore’s newest is a sequel to A Dirty Job. And if sales of that book are any indication, several hundred thousand people are going to be happy to hear the news.

“Moore’s over-the-top humor, sense of the absurd and talent for creating delightfully eccentric characters are all in great form in Secondhand Souls, the sequel to the inimitable A Dirty Job. Stranger things than usual are happening in San Francisco, and Charlie Archer wants to set things straight. Unfortunately, he’s trapped in the body of a small animal…Another thoroughly absorbing laugh-fest from Christopher Moore!
— Carol Schneck Varner, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI

“Flat-out bonkers… Crammed with colorful, macabre characters who would feel right at home in a Tim Burton movie, this weird, expletive-laden, wildly entertaining sequel to Moore’s 2006 bestseller, A Dirty Job, is the perfect palette cleanser before the fall’s literary entrees… After all, how can you not catch a silly buzz from off-the-wall scenes featuring lizard-headed musketeers, stun-gun wielding cockney banshees and a politically correct ‘beefeater-bobcat guy’ who uses a ‘spork as a walking stick’?  You just can’t make this stuff up. But Christopher Moore can.”
— The Washington Post
