J. A. Fales about this book: The Robusta Incident is a dark, zany office comedy that blends a coffee chemist's midlife crisis and questionable sanity with some serious corporate satire to bring you a hilarious, office-style zombie apocalypse. In the case of the main character, Howard Danishefsky, the journey isn't so much a hero's journey. It's much more a bullied and badgered anti-hero's struggle to survive and hopefully makes his way toward some semblance of enlightenment and redemption. That is, of course, providing his often gargantuan ego doesn't get in the way. Writing the book was partly an act of therapy for the author herself, after having spent a few too many years languishing in the clutches of Corporate America. Kirkus Review said the book, "will appeal to anyone who's ever endured petty bureaucracy." Foreword Clarion Review said, "It is both a revenge fantasy and a worst nightmare for cubicle workers, and it rocks." And IndieReader remarked in its five-star review of the book that, "The plot is somewhere between Mary Shelly and Mel Brooks."
