Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d'Art by Christopher Moore

This dark tale starts with the suicide of Vincent Van Gogh and introduces readers to the lives of the Impressionist painters in Paris.  Based on the painters’ documented lives and personalities Moore weaves history with fantasy in an intriguing way.   All of the events are tied together by the Colorman, who has produced the “Sacred Blue” during human history.  Color paintings are interspersed throughout the text, giving the reader a feel for the artists’ work.   Check out the gorgeous Sacre Bleu @the library!
