January 4, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

The Weekly Standard senior writer Matt Labash has a new book coming out in February titled Fly Fishing with Darth Vader: And Other Adventures with Evangelical Wrestlers, Political Hitmen, and Jewish Cowboys. “Blessed with his uncanny ability for extracting comic humanity from even the wariest politicians, con artists, and rogues, as well as for shedding light on the darkest corners of our American experience, Labash is a singular talent, and Fly Fishing with Darth Vader for the first time assembles his best feature writing, showcasing the true breadth of his work.”
Publishers Weekly says “when [Labash] sticks to profiling the antics of the lunatic journalists, political hacks, and ego-loving candidates that he so clearly adores, he gives readers a real glimpse at the strangeness and silliness that suffuse American political life.”
