Confessions of a Concierge - by Rafael Gracia Jr.- Paperback
***In a world where everything can be staged for performance, the truth can feel like water to dry land. ***
This book is all about the experiences I had while working as a Concierge at a Building in Long Island City New York, for over a year starting in 2009. The experiences you are about to read are true, they are not about a million little fibers but a look into the world of the upper class through the eyes of a simple lower-class father of four, who took the job during a recession because no other work was available.
Some of the individuals who are in this book are the kind of people you either love or hate or have read about or seen on television shows and movies, but to me they are just characters in the real world. Some characters I would call friends and good-hearted people, others I call just characters. You will read about all kinds of people, Hispanics, Jewish, African Americans, and Asians, homosexuals, a former hippie, former Military personal, and Sellouts. You know, the ones that forget where they came from, and pretend to be somebody else.
It's funny how upper-class people look down on you like you are a piece of crap or look at you like you need pity. But the funny part is about how bad or sad their lives are behind closed doors.
These are my Confessions through the eyes of the characters that I had the pleasure and displeasure to meet.
