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.
A lonely Crow Indian turned yuppie insurance salesman seeks the power of an ancient Indian god to give him enough courage to approach the woman of his dreams.

1 . Have a Warped sense of humor to read this
Posted May 23, 2010 by kw , LaGrangeThis was a fun read. Jumped around between characters a lot so pay attention, but the story is a hoot. I don't know the first thing about Native American cultures between tribes (sorry) but if any of this is true, I think the rest of us are missing out on a lot of interesting behaviors. I love Coyote and Pokey Medicine Wing. They remind me of "Grumpier Old Men." Christoper Moore must have had a lot of fun writing this, and it makes you wonder how his imagination was able to create such a fun read.
