Charlie Asher is a pretty normal guy with a normal life, married to a bright and pretty woman who actually loves him for his normalcy. They're even about to have their first child. Yes, Charlie's doing okay—until people start dropping dead around him, and everywhere he goes a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Charlie Asher, it seems, has been recruited for a new position: as Death.

It's a dirty job. But, hey! Somebody's gotta do it.

Makes you laugh in the face of death.[Moore] is superb in this mock epic of death and love. Smart people will be enormously amused.My top pick for laugh-out-loud reading . . . dark, dark, dark and funny, funny, funny.Hilarious yet poignant.Outlandishly funny.One of the antic Moores funniest capers yet.Dizzyingly inventive and hypnotically engaging, A DIRTY JOB is . . . like no other book Ive ever read.[A] wonderful, whacked-out yarn.Moores signature tossed-off humor is in full effect, and its easy to care about his warm, lumpy, honest characters.To keep a straight face while reading this book, one would have to be dead already ... Grade: A.[Moores] most speculative, tripped-out and deeply felt book to date.A bravura mix of the familiar and the hilariously original.[A DIRTY JOB] will keep a smile on your face long after you put it down.Outstanding . . . The dialogue follows a zany illogic worthy of the Marx brothers.Death, of course, is not usually a funny subject, but in the hands of Christopher Moorels'
