From master of subversive humor Christopher Moore comes a quirky, irreverent novel of love, myth, metaphysics, outlaw biking, angst, and outrageous redemption.

As a boy, he was Samson Hunts Alone--until a deadly misunderstanding with the law forced him to flee the Crow reservation at age fifteen. Today he is Samuel Hunter, a successful Santa Barbara insurance salesman with a Mercedes, a condo, and a hollow, invented life. Then one day, destiny offers him the dangerous gift of love--in the exquisite form of Calliope Kincaid--and a curse in the unheralded appearance of an ancient god by the name of Coyote. Coyote, the trickster, has arrived to reawaken the mystical storyteller within Sam...and to seriously screw up his existence in the process.

Didn't know what to expect, reminded me of Tom Robbins (not sure who came first) - absurd, religious/sexual overtones (and undertones), definitely keeps you interested! I look forward to catching more of Mr. Moore's novels!

I love funny books and this guy has a sense of humor, plus he can write. Some of his books aren't quite the same quality, but hey--humor is good

Interesting use of the coyote as a trickster in aboriginal mythology.

I really enjoyed the story although it took a while to understand the humor.
Christopher Moore as a very sharp sardonic wit.
