I found this on my daughter's book shelf when I went to help her with her new child. I have read a lot of Mr. Moore but not this book. Another great book from Christopher Moore. His blend of fantasy and reality is engaging. One of those books you stay up late reading because you want to see where it leads.

Christopher Moore has a talent for stepping in that very irreverent place just short of disrespectful; this comes out wonderfully in Coyote Blue, making it one of Moore's best, and funniest, books. Coyote Blue is definitely recommended.

This is the first Christopher Moore novel I read, and it led me to become a huge fan of this author. Moore takes the standard 'normal, boring guy falls in love and turns his life upside-down' story and makes it fresh, incredibly entertaining, and fun. Don't be deterred if you're not a fan of fantasy novels (the talking coyote could just as easily be the 'crazy best friend' character in any other novel), because the concept of shedding a false persona to find true self-realization should appeal to fans of any genre.

by Harper Collins,
From Christopher Moore, author of Fluke, comes a quirky, irreverent novel of love, myth, metaphysics, outlaw biking, angst, and outrageous redemption.
As a boy growing up in Montana, 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, shortly after his thirty-fifth birthday, 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 Indian god by the name of Coyote. Coyote, the trickster, has arrived to transform tranquillity into chaos, to reawaken the mystical storyteller within Sam ... and to seriously screw up his existence in the process.
