"Disturbingly hilarious. And vice versa." --Jenny Lawson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Let's Pretend This Didn't Happen.
In San Francisco, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearing and you know that can't be good in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore's delightfully funny sequel to A Dirty Job.
Something really strange is happening in the City by the Bay. People are dying, but their souls are not being collected. Someone or something is stealing them and no one knows where they are going, or why, but it has something to do with that big orange bridge. Death Merchant Charlie Asher is just as flummoxed as everyone else. He's trapped in the body of a fourteen-inch-tall meat puppet waiting for his Buddhist nun girlfriend, Audrey, to find him a suitable new body to play host.
To get to the bottom of this abomination, a motley crew of heroes will band together: the seven-foot-tall death merchant Minty Fresh; retired policeman turned bookseller Alphonse Rivera; the Emperor of San Francisco and his dogs, Bummer and Lazarus; and Lily, the former Goth girl. Now if only they can get little Sophie to stop babbling about the coming battle for the very soul of humankind.
Christopher Moore is the author of thirteen previous novels, including Lamb, The Stupidest Angel, Fool, Sacre Bleu, and A Dirty Job. He lives in San Francisco, California.
The event is free and open to the public, however seating will be limited. General admission will begin at 11:30am. A book signing will follow the reading.
