One of the most gifted and entertaining journalists writing today, Matt Labash can extract comic humanity from even the most wary politicians, con artists, and rogues¿while shedding wisdom about the rich corners of our American experience. Fly Fishing with Darth Vader pulls together the best of Labash¿s feature writing and includes his masterful profiles of the outrageous characters who populate America¿s periphery, his loving and lacerating portraits of New Orleans and Detroit, and his hilarious tirades on the health hazards of Facebook and the virtues of dodgeball. Among other must-read essays, Labash chronicles Al Sharpton¿s eating habits, fishes the Snake River with Dick Cheney, and investigates the ¿great white waste of time¿ that is our neighbor to the north. Labash was born with a natural appreciation for the American scoundrel and a sense that life is one big chance for laughter. For those reasons, Fly Fishing with Darth Vader will be cherished and talked about for years.
