Arizona Opera Book Club Meeting: Fool

Changing Hands - Phoenix
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 7:00pm (Phoenix)
All Arizona Opera Book Club Books

Join the Arizona Opera staff at Changing Hands' Phoenix location for a discussion of the NY Times Bestseller Fool by Christopher Moore.

Fool—the bawdy and outrageous New York Times bestseller from the unstoppable Christopher Moore—is a hilarious new take on William Shakespeare’s King Lear…as seen through the eyes of the foolish liege’s clownish jester, Pocket. A rousing tale of “gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity,” Fool joins Moore’s own LambFluke, The Stupidest Angel, and You Suck! as modern masterworks of satiric wit and sublimely twisted genius, prompting Carl Hiassen to declare Christopher Moore “a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word."
