Christ versus Arizona turns on the events in 1881 that surrounded the duel in the OK Corral, where Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and Virgil and Morgan Earp fought the Clantons and McLaurys. Set against the backdrop of an Arizona influenced by the Mexican Revolution and the westward expansion of the United States, the story is a bravura performance by the 1989 Nobel Prize-winning author. A monologue by the naive, unreliable, and uneducated Wendell L. Espana, the book weaves together hundreds of characters and a torrent of inter-connected anecdotes, some true, some fabricated. Wendell's story is a document of the vast array of ills that welcomed the dawning of the 20th Century, ills that continue to shape our world in the new millennium.
