Holy Water by James Othmer

09/09/2010

This clever satire examines our modern world with its global business interests.  When heavily in-debt business man Henry Tuhoe is given a choice by his boss of either being laid off or moving to a third-world country to open a new call center, Henry decides to move.  Not only does he get to keep his job, but gets a break from his wife who won’t let him touch her and is learning witchcraft.  Once overseas, he discovers the pitfalls of outsourcing first hand.  The call center has no phones, let alone any employees that speak English.  Despite being faced with these problems, Henry decides to make it his personal crusade to provide the poverty stricken citizens of his new country with clean, fresh water.  This novel is a humorous look at our modern world and what happens when our Western, first-world values and traditions meet those of the less developed nations.
