Summary
"This is a bawdy tale. Herein you will find gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity...If that's the sort of thing you think you might enjoy, then you have happened upon the perfect story!" So says the New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore, who now takes on the legendary Bard himself with an insanely funny tale of a moronic monarch named Lear, his deceitful daughters, and a ghost (there's always a bloody ghost) - all as seen through the eyes of a man wearing a codpiece and bells on his head. Said royal fool is Pocket, a man of infinite jest, upon whose slight shoulders now rests the future of a kingdom. Pocket may be a fool...but he's definitely not an idiot
Summary
In 1288, as King Lear watches his kingdom descend into chaos, the king's fool, Pocket, and Pocket's apprentice, Drool, take it upon themselves to restore order amidst the mayhem, and in the process make a surprising discovery about their own heritage
