Doorman Wanted is a work of fiction by author Glenn R. Miller in the slice-of-life, comedy, and interpersonal drama subgenres and is best suited to the general adult reading audience. Readers are introduced to Henry Franken, a man struggling with a surplus of wealth inherited from his unscrupulous father. Faced with the conflict between his newfound financial status and progressive ideals, Henry takes a unique approach to dealing with his inheritance. Applying for the position of doorman under a pseudonym, he enters the world of the Upper East Side residential building he now owns. The narrative unfolds as Henry, now known as ‘Franklin Hanratty,’ navigates interactions with residents and the homeless, evolving from an idealistic individual avoiding the implications of his fortune to someone willing to wield that wealth for the broader societal good.
Author Glenn R. Miller has crafted a delightful comedic novel that is also a thought-provoking experience, exploring the complexities of wealth, identity, and societal expectations. I really appreciated the clever balance of humor that offsets the insightful commentary on class dynamics and personal growth, making this a work that gradually gets its central message across whilst being thoroughly entertaining from cover to cover. There was something very ‘It Happened On Fifth Avenue’ about it, but it also had all the linguistic charm of a classic ‘Jeeves and Wooster’ adventure. The transformation of the central protagonist is both entertaining and enlightening, providing readers with a fresh perspective on wealth, privilege, and social responsibility through enigmatic dialogue and amusing happenstances. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Doorman Wanted for fans of character-driven storytelling that oozes appeal but also has a poignant and positive message at its core.
