Surviving layoffs at his multinational conglomerate company, a disenchanted Henry Tuhoe transfers to a new office in the tiny magical Kingdom of Galado, where he confronts moral conundrums that satirize real-world challenges. By the author of
James Othmer mines the same darkly cynical vein that marked his debut THE FUTURIST in HOLY WATER, the tale of Henry, a corporate hack shipped off to the backwater country of Galado to start a call-center for a bottled water company. The job is benighted, the country is corrupt, and Henry is surprised to find himself on a mission of mercy to bring clean water to the country's people. Othmer (ADLAND) has a deep and satirical understanding of the globalized world, and his novel riffs with great brio on the inanity, ennui, and injustice of modern life.
