2016 LA Book Festival Recognizes THE LOBBY

A Hilarious Look at Those Lives Passing Through an Upscale San Francisco Hotel

San Francisco, CA, March 29, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Top 5% seller on Amazon, THE LOBBY (Friesen Press: 2016), a hilarious look at those lives passing through an upscale San Francisco Hotel is another humor/fiction novel by author Randi M Sherman. THE LOBBY is here and it's a winner! www.randimshermanbooks.com

Reminiscent of Grand Hotel and Neil Simon’s California Suite, THE LOBBY 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 of staff, long-term residents, and eclectic guests.

Evocative of Upstairs Downstairs, the reader gets a delicious vicarious look at both the guests and staff at The Shipley Hotel whose lives briefly intersect over the course of a 24-hour period. Each consecutive chapter title is a time of day, beginning at 4:00 AM, when the hotel lobby comes to life as those working behind the scenes downstairs spruce up the lobby with fresh flower centerpieces, and front-desk staff are busy preparing for the hectic day ahead as their guests upstairs are sleeping, oblivious to the busy preparations taking place downstairs.

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.
