After singing her way up through every illegal beer joint in NYC's Hell's Kitchen, Honey Burke gets her big break, the Headline Singer at a top speakeasy - from which she is appropriated by Big Augie Farrell, a Chicago Mobster. The rest of the story is concerned with her search for validation, "cosmic" proof that she matters. And that pursuit ultimately leads her to her "prince."


Excerpt

Prologue: Those who require their fairy stories to be from an olden time so they can believe in them, and short enough that they do not lose faith in that belief, will find one below which is very old, and very, very short: Once upon a magic time, Nee-am of the Golden Hair, daughter of the King of Tir-na-nOg, The Land of The Forever Young, left her father's kingdom on a snow white horse, in search of the perfect lover. She didn't know who he was but in her heart she knew that when she found him she would recognize him. One day, riding across a meadow on her snow white horse, she came upon the young man named Usheen, and the moment she saw him knew that he was The One. And he, too, knew that she was The One. And so, when she asked him to climb up behind her on her snow white steed and ride with her, he did. And after the honeymoon, she returned with him to her father's kingdom and thus, she made her prince an immortal. For a longer and much newer fairy story, turn the page: _____________________________ Chapter 1 _____________________________ ONCE UPON A TIME, in the magical year of 1929, a girl with golden hair and a frown that marred her beautiful face, was being driven north on Chicago's Sheridan Road in Big Augie Farrell's big, black, bullet-proof limousine, and her angry thoughts explained the reason for her frown: Anybody asts me, a girl should oughta be in charge a her own story - wich this is the numb a the thing, the gorilla don't ast me nothin!

Reader Reviews for "HONEY"

Reviewed by Amy Kelly 4/26/2002

Go, Honey!
Honey Burke is 60 years ahead of her time, her 'cosmic' search to prove that she 'matters' is a rollicking
lark, and the making of her 'prince' into an immortal is the laugh of the year.
