“This dark comedy with some criminal action thrown in brings a lot of difficult issues up to the surface. ...Four Stars". "This book is chuck-full of 'that’s so wrong' kind of humor, the kind you’ll want to read aloud to your spouse and get them to laugh with you." - Portland Book Review
Hilarious, Darkly Comedic Workplace Novel
Attaining the American Dream One Lie at a Time.
Kevin Taylor is a woefully mediocre man who finds himself at a crossroads in his mid-30's. Everyday his alarm clock wakes him up for the cold realization that he has to go to a job that he downright loathes. His cubicle is his own private cell for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.
All of his efforts to get a promotion or get another job over the past 10 years have been thwarted by his indifference towards hard work and overall incompetence. He feels destined to be stuck in the glut of the lower middle-class, living from check to check, never having the ability to do the things he wants to do, and going to a passionless job he hates in order to maintain his mediocre fate.
He is then proposed a scenario where he would be guaranteed a promotion at his job by getting all of his rival co-workers fired from their respective positions, thus leaving him as the only candidate for the lone vacancy. This strategy of office terrorism leads him into a string of hysterical occurrences as he quests to get what he thinks he rightfully deserves.
