It’s Fahey’s writing style that makes his book an absolute pleasure to read, dynamic enough to keep me reading and lively enough to draw me back if I’m away from it for any amount of time. In short, Fahey writes at a rare level, effectively utilizing voice that’s comfortable juggling confessional and literary modes, humor and pathos, and a noir-like journalism that reveals the innards of Arizona state politics in the 1980s.
For me, this book fills in an important part of the long, sorry saga of Arizona politics. I’ve read several books covering the land swindles of 1970s Arizona and the earlier gangster years that led up to them. Gangsters, Governors, and Greasy Land Grabs – what more could one state want?
On top of all that, there are some bonuses sprinkled throughout this book, what many might consider insignificant subjects, but what the author literally infuses with memorable imagery and significance: the differences between kiwi and grape eaters or the struggles your average American might experience navigating the drinking menu of an English pub. The writing in these areas results in no less than Pure Reading Bliss.
The only negative thing I can bring to this discussion is that I really hated finishing the book. I hated finishing it so much that I’ll probably go back to read it again, and I’ll definitely start looking for more work from this author.
It's a fun read, especially in these GOP Dog Days. As Ted Humes said in one of its pages, "Todd comes well-recommended." So does this book. Goes well with the times.
