What do you get when you mix the Impressionist painters, mysterious deaths, time travel, life in fin de siècle Paris and irreverent humor? You get Christopher Moore’s new novel, Sacre Bleu. As a lover of art history and historical fiction, I enjoyed traveling back to fin de siècle Paris when Impressionist painting was in its infancy. If that wasn’t interesting enough, Moore ‘s story is interwoven with time travel and stories about the mysterious Colorman, and the Colorman’s dubious influence upon artists throughout the ages. Humorously clever, I enjoyed how the humor was intricately woven into the historical and not so historical facts of the period.
