Christopher Moore - 'Secondhand Souls'

How do we describe Christopher Moore's work? Just... go with the flow and be prepared to snort with laughter.  The author of Lamb, The Serpent of Venice and more joins us on Saturday, September 5, at 7 pm with Secondhand Souls. In this delightfully weird and funny sequel to the NY Times bestseller A Dirty Job, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearing – and you know that can’t be good.  To get to the bottom of this abomination, a motley crew of heroes will band together: the seven-foot-tall death merchant Minty Fresh; intrepid grandmother-nannies, Mrs. Ling and Mrs. Korjev; retired policeman-turned-bookseller Alphonse Rivera; the Emperor of San Francisco and his dogs, Bummer and Lazarus; and Lily, the former Goth-girl. And, oh yes, a few old favorites. 
Christopher Moore will sign all his books, and personalize up to two.  Photos are fine.
