Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A novel that skewers the inanities of our age, with results that are outrageous, wildly funny, and utterly subversive. It's Sandlin at his most maverick best.

Set in the very near future, Honey Don't features a hit list that runs the gamut: from a goatish President dying in flagrante, to an aging Don appalled by modern manners; from a certifiably stupid mafia bagman fleeing both the Secret Service and the mob with $656,000 of dirty money in a locked attaché case and the President's head in a carry-all, to a coke-snorting, blow-dried VP who has suddenly caught the brass ring. Circling them are conniving White House staffers, corrupt politicos, sleazy journalists, and rancid pro-football coaches-all adding up to a DC three-ring circus.

And in the center ring is the eponymous Honey, one of those Texas women cursed with a given name that condemns her to a lifetime of cheerleadering. But this daddy's little girl is a free spirit in full rebellion, and her take on life-offbeat but on target-is the heart and soul of this antic tale. And, as always with Sandlin, it's the women who have the last laugh.

Review:

"Strongly reminiscent of Carl Hiaasen and Tom Robbins....This madcap farce is a surefire bet to have readers laughing out loud." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Sandlin brings his gifts for anarchic plotting and over-the-top characterizations to Washington....Sandlin celebrates the comeuppance of dumbbells and the triumph of love in a funny and fast-paced novel." Joanne Wilkinson, Booklist

Review:

"[A] crowded funhouse of a satirical political thriller, stuffed to the gills with broadly comic situations and even broader characters....True, no one from this gigantic cast is memorable enough to stick in the head for long. On the other hand, there's that hellzapoppin' plot. Nobody could ever accuse Honey Don't of being sluggish." Adam Woog, The Seattle Times

Review:

"The secret to the novel's success is Sandlin's knack for blending his wacky humor with an obvious affection for even the most minor characters....Forget the details; just know that, like Honey, Tim Sandlin's readers end up getting a sweet deal." Becky Ohlsen, BookPage

Review:

"Sandlin shows a deft touch with urban themes like rampant power plays, sexy situations, and stupidities of the highest order. Anyone new to his work may be a little wary as the satire comes on fairly strong, but fans will welcome the irreverent, mocking send-up with groans, chuckles, and an outright belly laugh or two." Library Journal

Review:

"Oh my God, Tim Sandlin has been set loose in the Literary Chinashop again....Tim Sandlin is so off the normal wall in this wonderful travesty that maybe you have to take him seriously. I mean, the whole novel is crazy...like a fox. It's a heartbreaking work of staggering lunacy...hence parental guidance is advised." John Nichols, author of The Milagro Beanfield War

About the Author

Tim Sandlin is the author of five novels that have made him something of a cult figure. He's been likened to Jack Kerouac, Tom Robbins, Joseph Heller, J. D. Salinger, Garrison Keillor, Pam Houston, and David Lynch, but, in fact, he's a true original with his own incomparable voice and vision.
