As a reviewer once memorably said of the comic novelist Christopher Moore, "Less may be more, but it isn’t Moore." From the supernatural hijinks of books like Practical Demonkeeping to his upside-down takes on the likes of Shakespeare (Fool) or the Bible (Lamb) , Moore's combination of sly wit, literary remixing and Looney-Tunes action mean that his bestselling works of fiction are crammed with delights. His new novel, Noir takes readers to a version of 1940s San Francisco in true Christopher Moore style. The author joins us to talk about his latest book, and why he took up writing to prove an editor wrong.
