AOT #37: Christopher Moore Podcasts A Dirty Job

September 3, 2006 by  
Filed under Book Store Events

Christopher Moore shines his comic light on the toughest of subjects — death and dying — in A Dirty Job.

Moore, the man whose novel Lamb served up Jesus’ “missing years” (with the funny parts left in) and whose Fluke found the deep humor in whale researchers’ lives, discusses his new novel — A Dirty Job — and other items of interest ranging from moose in Colorado to the “beta-male” theory. In A Dirty Job, Moore focuses his keen comic eye on the undiscovered country we all eventually explore — death and dying. His novel is hilarious, heartwarming and a hell of a lot of fun.

($24.95) Harper Collins ISBN # 0-06-059027-0. Please visit Christopher Moore’s official web site as well.

    A DIRTY JOB WAS WONDERFUL AND STARTED ME ON ALL YOUR OTHERS…. Blue Coyote, Demonkeeping, Lamb (which I’m having a bit of trouble getting into it (I’m not religious – so that’s not it), and all the others. The …… something something …Sequined Nun was pretty nutty but Fluke was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out there !! But very entertaining. Cant wait for your new one !

    PS I’m telling everyone I know to discover your books…

    Christopher Moore is a breath of fresh air! After I read A Dirty Job, which was GLORIOUS, I immideatley had to read all his books! I actually did vote for the book on the on-line Quill awards…something I’ve never done before. Not to mention, telling all my friends about how wonderful A Dirty Job is! I also liked The Stupidest Angel et Fluke, which reminded me of my marine biology days in Key West (even though I didn’t meet any whaley boys lol). All I have to say is KEEP UP THE AMAZINGLY IMAGINATIVE WORK MR. MOORE!

  5. Well, I became interested in Christopher Moore when selling one of his books on ebay. (I hadn’t read the book, and wished I had, because I had to go out and purchase all of them.) There were so many bidders that I wrote to one and asked what the draw was. I really didn’t think I’d find an author that I enjoy as much as Tim Dorsey. Guess What? You know the answer to that one. I have not read “A Dirty Job” yet. I’m into Coyote Blue right now. But I have finished several others (Lamb included-that I sold) and laugh out loud at the predicaments of the characters. Can you imagine being in their shoes? I am passing all of these books on to the man I wrote to on ebay who had lost his library during Katrina, and was trying to replace each Christopher Moore book. Now I know why.

    I loved Dirty Job but kept seeing a young woody allen as Charlie. Even though hes discribed totaly different but I believe it was thru the diolog and his personality.
    I have read them all and my old army buddies from Oregon to Miami Florida are catching up. We all agree that you are “Stephen King meets woody allen.” not that you copy them or anything. um…I gotta go

    I introduced a few people at work to Lamb. Now within 6 months we have read every book in the selection and cannot wait for the sequel to Blood Sucking Fiends

    read them all people

  9. LINDA WEBB says:

    I’ve now officially read all your books since finding Dirty Jobs.. you are out there dude !! Lust Lizard et al was freaky, but I’m glad I read the books in order so I knew about the past characters in the newer books. Love their detail, frailities and oddities. Thank goodness for your falible (sp?)characters instead of the perfect people other writers create. I’m probably one of your goofballs ! (and proud of it !) Don’t ever die !!!!!!!!!!
