Ever wonder what really goes on behind the scenes at one of the most prestigious residential buildings in New York City--a multiple dwelling Upper East Side building located on Fifth Avenue, where the 0.01% of society pretends to commingle with the meager 1%--and jaw-droppingly told through the introspective eyes of an intelligent, browbeaten, misanthropic, self-medicating doorman?"Never give in to psychiatry when in pursuit of the American Dream." - Daire Feeney.In his debut series of novels, Daire Feeney has been loosely described as Frank McCourt meets Chuck Palahniuk as he tells an unbelievable transgressive story of a Fifth Avenue doorman for which one reviewer remarked, imagine if the Nanny Diaries was authored by Hunter S. Thompson but the main characters were sociopathic Fifth Avenue doormen! BOAT SHOES - SOLILOQUY OF A USELESS EATER tells the story of a first-generation son of Irish immigrants who, after falling on hard financial times, and a subsequent failed suicide attempt, finds himself seeking employment at his old high school job as a Fifth Avenue doorman. The reader follows the NYC native throughout a grueling 16-hour doorman shift as he is ridiculed by his employers, plied with narcotics by the old guard, sexually assaulted by residents, and becomes witness--and participant--to a wide range of inconceivable acts of moral turpitude; all in the pursuit of his specious American Dream. Book One of the series will be exclusively available to users of Amazon Kindle beginning December 11th. Kindle users can pre-order both Book One and Book Two of the series immediately.
