When some old secrets make office politics spiral out of control, three women will have to decide how far they’re willing to go to climb the corporate ladder.

At first glance, you couldn’t find three women more different than Margaret, Faulkner, and Joyce. Margaret is almost sixty, devoutly religious, and getting ready to retire from her job at Meridian Southwest. Faulkner is a young go-getter who really wants to land a position in upper management. And Joyce is a domineering, immaculately dressed middle-aged woman who’s moments away from receiving a top executive appointment.

But something just doesn’t seem right with these three. Isn’t it strange that Margaret and Joyce have worked together for more than twenty years but barely even speak? Why is it that the more Faulkner tries to impress Joyce with her hard work, the more Joyce seems to hate her? Who can explain why the management position for which Faulkner is the best qualified applicant remains vacant? And why is James, the department intern, always smiling about something?

Over the course of a few weeks, Margaret, Faulkner, and Joyce are unexpectedly drawn together as a tangled web woven decades earlier begins to unravel.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Perfect for the exhausted worker bee who realizes that Mr. Paycheck is the best thing about the job.”

    USA Today

  • “Camika Spencer’s edgy novel of women competing against each other (and the rest of the world, too) contains so many sharp observations and uncomfortable truths that you may never want to leave your cubicle again.”

    Dallas Morning News

  • “Exceedingly well executed...Spencer transcends the African-American ‘girlfriends with men problems’ genre and touches upon more substantial and universal themes. On one level, Cubicles may be enjoyed as an engrossing story of the challenges facing African-American women in the corporate workplace. But its implications are broader than that. It is about women and men of all races struggling to survive within, or to break out of, the compartments or cubicles of their economic, social, and personal lives. With Cubicles, Spencer has exceeded the bright promise of When All Hell Breaks Loose.”

    Fort Worth Star-Telegram

  • “[A] light-hearted look at the office politics that influence performance and promotion.”
