The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove | [Christopher Moore]

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove

The town psychiatrist has decided to switch everybody in Pine Cove, California, from their normal antidepressants to placebos, so naturally - well, to be accurate, artificially - business is booming at the local blues bar. Trouble is, those lonely slide-guitar notes have also attracted a colossal sea beast named Steve with, shall we say, a thing for explosive oil tanker trucks.

Publisher's Summary

The town psychiatrist has decided to switch everybody in Pine Cove, California, from their normal antidepressants to placebos, so naturally - well, to be accurate, artificially - business is booming at the local blues bar. Trouble is, those lonely slide-guitar notes have also attracted a colossal sea beast named Steve with, shall we say, a thing for explosive oil tanker trucks.

Suddenly, morose Pine Cove turns libidinous and is hit by a mysterious crime wave, and a beleaguered constable has to fight off his own gonzo appetites to find out what's wrong and what, if anything, to do about it.

©1999 Christopher Moore; (P)2009 HarperCollins Publishers

What the Critics Say

"Moore is Daniel Pinkwater for grownups, but a lot funnier; and his irreverent antics reveal a buoyant wit and surreal authority even while rendering the emotional range, sex life, and murderous tendencies of a sea monster." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Not For Me"

    I couldn't finish it. It has some very funny characters but it wasn't as funny as it tries to be. I am sure some folks would like it though, if the humor hits you just right.

    "Just too silly"

    My grandchildren think I'm silly when I make up poems for them. My wife thinks I'm silly when I suggest that she should take out the trash, just once. But this book is just too silly.
