Another great Christopher Moore story. This one deals with the impressionist painters in Paris in the 1890s and how they got their inspiration for painting. It is a mystery with plenty of murder and intrigue, and drinking, ethereal creatures, and plenty of lewd behavior.

Sacre Bleu reminds me a lot of Lamb. It is a longer story that is largely based on well known historical figures (this time painters instead of Jesus). It takes a bunch of stories from that time and turns them into a funny and bawdy adventure. Having briefly studied french impressionist painting in college (one class) I particularly enjoyed it as it dealt with my favorite painters and style of painting. There are also some pretty good cameos.
