My Shelf Candy for this Saturday is:
A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore
Synopsis can be found here.
I thought I'd round out the month of May with Christopher Moore again.
This is one of my favorite books. Sure, Lamb is his most popular book, but there is something about A Dirty Job that holds a special place in my heart.
The cover is amazing. The macabre atmosphere. The black and white cover with the pink old fashioned baby carriage. The baby skull with her tiny scythe. And the old fashioned shoes and pin striped dress pants pushing the little bundle along.
And the title, at the bottom, the carriage rolling over the thick pink letters.
It was my first Christopher Moore book. I bought a signed copy, many moons ago now, at Festival of Books in Los Angeles. Because of the cover. And loved the book inside.
It's a little weird, a little out of the box. And a lot awesome.
What do you think?
