“Labor Pains is irreverently funny. …a glorious celebration of half-ass-ism and mediocrity” – San Francisco Book Review
“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
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 until he decides to eliminate his competition using a strategy of office terrorism leads him into a string of hysterical occurrences as he quests to get what he thinks he rightfully deserves.
Labor Pains is a wry and absurdly comical look at the modern employee caught in the endless cycle of consumerism where it is impossible to differentiate your wants versus your needs.
