Reminiscent of Grand Hotel and Neil Simon's California
Suite, THE LOBBY (Freisen Press; March 2016) by Randi Sherman, sheds a hilarious spotlight on the comings and goings of anonymous people who come to life in the lobby of the grand Shipley Hotel. Practically engineered for eavesdropping, San Francisco's juiciest hotel lobby offers the perfect place to
witness the lives-and the most comedic intersections off staff, long-term residents, and eclectic guests.

Randi Sherman's spot-on character descriptions capture humanity in all its vain, self-absorbed, often romantic and sometimes loving preoccupations in 50 interlocking short stories as the narrator snoops into the lives of hotel workers and guests as they crisscross in the Shipley's elegant lobby.

"Smart, witty and fearless in its pursuit of levity, The Lobby is the latest release from Randi M. Sherman and it's one you have to read! An author who excels in credible characterization, this time she places her characters into illuminating parodies of her setting, consistently devising turns of plot that are inventive and yet, in the best way, seemingly inevitable. Matched only by her witty ear for dialogue it is without doubt a masterful narrative that's infused with passion and benefits from flawless delivery. With so many story
threads, it's not an easy task and whilst the denouement isn't arrived at easily or predictably, it is most importantly a lot of fun to get there. It seems that Sherman's goal is the liberation of tedium from the chains of timidity, banality and our daily identity and on this level there's a certain cathartic pleasure to be found in the events that touch her characters,. Page by page her prose take control and by turn compel us to reflect, or laugh out loud, as we find ourselves mingling with the guests and daily visitors to the Shipley Hotel." - BookViral Review
