“This time around, Moore takes on Shakespeare’s King Lear – it’s raunchy and bawdy and TONS of fun.”
He’s turned his laser wit to demons, whales, death and the undead, alpha males, angels, a lust lizard, and even Jesus. Now, Christopher Moore pays homage to one of our most revered cultural icons: Shakespeare. The Fool is Pocket, an orphan raised by nuns who has become jester and trusted confidant of a king with three beautiful, smart, and occasionally dangerous daughters.
Treachery, treason, and murder most foul are afoot at the Lear castle, and Pocket and his apprentice fool, Drool, are caught in the thick of it.
