The author does not purport to be an accomplished writer and he willingly admits that he does not have a creative bone in his body. Those that know him, however, readily acknowledge that he is definitely gifted as a raconteur.
After graduating from Fordham College of Pharmacy, the author spent four to five unfulfilled years as a pharmacist and then fortuitously found himself in the hotel business. His fifteen years managing a Manhattan midtown hotel provided him with the venue to meet very interesting characters, at vastly different levels of sanity. For more than thirty years he has been telling stories regarding these individuals to family and friends. At the end of his tales he was almost always urged to write a book.
The encounters and incidents at this hotel have given the author a substantial volume of events and he has finally decided to put them into writing. They required no embellishment to give the reader belly laughs and evenings of fun reading.
