“It’s a Dry Hump”

April 25th

Mini and I went to hear Christopher Moore last night. My only regret was that I didn’t coordinate Finny’s latest visit for this talk; holy hell — is this author funny! (One of of Finny’s favorites too.)

Christopher Moore

Someone in the audience asked him, “Were you a stand-up comedian before you starting writing?”  He said he wasn’t. He intended to be a horror writer, but his characters just ended up being funny people. His latest book is set in Venice, with influences of both Edgar Allan Poe and Shakespeare. And of course, a lot of Italian history. So not only is the guy incredibly smart, but he can tell a story in a way that had everyone in the room snorting.

And then he took a lot of cracks at Arizona, including it being “A dry hate.” And the local chihuahuas participate in a “dry hump,” and most of these jokes do not translate on my little blog, but were hold-your-sides funny in person. It was a great night, and I’m so glad I got to go with Min, who truly loves CM.

If you haven’t read his stuff, start with Lamb. It is one of the funniest books I’ve ever read. Also — it was incredible to be at a venue with that many people clamoring to hear one of their favorite authors. LOVE IT!

  1. I’m bummed I didn’t get to join you and Min for this – we might have been called up on stage to account for our horrible behavior. I fucking love that guy. AND IN A GIANTS JERSEY.
