Format: Paperback
A tour de force of social commentary that combines the classic satire of Jonathan Swift with the gut-laughter of South Park. Confident and assured in its style, pinpoint-precise in its approach, National Darkroast Day is an impressive debut from a writer with true staying power!" If you like novels such as C.D. Payne's hysterical Frisco Pigeon Mambo or Gulliver's Travels, this is a must read!

Format: Paperback
Compelling story that develops quickly and leaves you eager to see what lies ahead for the protagonist and his friends. Clearly penned by a detailed and imaginative mind, you can almost taste the "Mind Melt" with each page. It may make you switch to decaf by the end!

Format: Paperback
From the first sip...er...page, National Darkroast Day [best read with a double latte] absorbs the reader into a colossal, metaphorical struggle between a balanced way of life and overindulgent American consumption.

Presenting a consequential message for today's consumerist society packaged within a optimistic and humorous saga, the reader can experience a gripping battle between and evil manifested as toxic coffee served with a cherry on top.

Format: Paperback
As an ex-barista and coffee addict, I just have to say, "Now it all makes sense." This is a great read that kept me laughing all the way through as I encountered characters I knew well from my coffee shop days. Once you read this, you'll still be hopelessly addicted, but at least you'll think twice about trying new flavors.
