Honey the Hat
by Jamie d’Antioc
About Honey the Hat
A novel about an extraordinarily cultured young lady from the eastern seaboard of the United States who has studied Levantine languages, law and the Dubishani culture (a fictitious country in the Arabian Gulf). The novel looks at the interaction between her and the main characters – bankers, oil men and embassy spies. In addition to interesting revelations about the cultural exchange between east and west, this interaction also reveals a plot for western domination of her adopted country through the absorption of its liquidity by arms sales. In her defence of the moral good, Honey enlists the help of bankers and other good men in the desert, and exploits the power of barter to solve Dubishan’s existing problems and set up a bright new future in a story which is dramatic, engaging and often humorous.
