Michelle, our Virtual Branch Librarian, recommends Heads in Beds by Jacob Tomsky.
“Heads in Beds is a raucous, fun read that trails Jacob Tomsky’s exploits in the hotel business – from bellboy to front desk clerk. Think of it as Kitchen Confidential, set in a hotel. If you read this book, you will find out things about the hospitality business you can never unlearn (like how housekeeping really gets those drinking glasses so shiny). You’ll also be entertained by stories of all the strange guests, employees, and downright crazy situations that Tomsky encounters during his career. During library school, I worked as a front desk clerk at a hotel in a college town. I can attest that nothing is unexpected in the hospitality business. Dead bodies found in rooms, college kids naked in the halls, and fights in the lobby: hotel workers see it all! Tomsky brought all my lovely (and not so lovely) memories of hotel work to life in this laugh-out-loud memoir - and for that I thank him!"
