Another giveaway! A grown-up book this time.
In this behind-the-velvet-rope memoir, anonymous blogger Rob the Bouncer (Rob Fitzgerald) details his adventures working security at “Axis,” a dizzying composite of real-life New York nightclubs. Spending grungy nights working the “Nightmare Square” of club-choked West Chelsea, antagonized by feuding bosses and berated by the downgrading clientele, Rob has plenty of material for his misanthropic observations. He spends most nights playing God to a line-up of bankers, club kids and mobsters, ogling his bartender girlfriend and babysitting the VIP room for pocket cash. Rob is a likable, identifiable narrator, an average working guy dreaming of something better, genuinely aggrieved to be trading barbs with women drunk enough to chuck tampons at him.
