THE LOBBY - A hilarious look at all those who pass thru an upscale San Francisco hotel
If you’ve ever spent time in a hotel lobby people-watching, you will recognize the various cast of colorful characters in Randi Sherman’s new book: THE LOBBY: The guest on a business trip who complains about every add-on charge; the controlling husband who badgers the front desk staff while his embarrassed wife looks on helplessly; the company employees attending an off-site conference playing musical bedrooms; the adulterous couple sauntering freely in a hotel lobby thinking their secret is safe from their respective spouses; the out-of-towner wanting to get his money’s worth on his weekend stay who disputes every charge on his bill; the aging playboy who flirts with the polite hotel receptionist thinking he’s still got it when she smiles back at him as she is trained to do.
THE LOBBY is set at a grand San Francisco hotel, The Shipley, which is a composite of every hotel Ms. Sherman has ever stayed at. The Shipley’s fictitious lobby, which could be a stand-in for any upscale hotel lobby in the world, offers a microcosm of humanity where one can witness the comings and goings all types of people with independent reasons for being at the same place at the same time. In THE LOBBY, Ms. Sherman presents 50 intersecting stories that take place during a single 24-hour period, in just one location. Her book is a hilarious description of what goes on in hotels, how the staff copes with difficult guests, and what types of people stay at upscale hotels.
Sherman’s experience as a stand-up comedienne is evident throughout the hilarious, often laugh-out-loud scenes in THE LOBBY, where her insights into humanity’s flaws, preoccupations, and private behavior when you think no one is looking, are so accurate.
Many movies, including Grand Hotel, Neil Simon’s California Suite and The Plaza Suite, and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel have been made because hotels are great canvases with which to watch various people interact with one another. THE LOBBY, like those famous movies, delivers a vast canvas of eclectic characters that displays people behaving in all their outrageous and unwitting guises for all the world to see when they think no one is noticing.
THE LOBBY is available at all of your favorite online booksellers: Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, iTunes, GoogleBooks.com, Nook, Kindle, Kobo and more...
