about this item

A Doorman's Memoir is a self-published memoir by Brent Lymer, detailing his days moonlighting as a Vancouver nightclub doorman during the 1990s. Manning the front door at Granville Street mainstays "Fred's Uptown Tavern" and "Babalu's", Lymer fondly reminisces about trusted friendships, ill-tempered customers, and testosterone-driven barbs. Using downtown Vancouver as it's backdrop, A Doorman's Memoir touches on Vancouver's violent underbelly, while exploring what makes male friendships so endearing, so frustrating and always competitive. Lymer uses a pithy, self-deprecating voice that tells it like it was, often brutal, hilarious and definitely not politically correct. While primarily a humorous reflection on a past life, the narrative is punctuated with laugh-out-loud circumstances. Throughout the book, Lymer calls out hilarious back stories to provide context into his own personal baggage. In the end, the novel is actually a story about true friendships. Friendships based on trust, humor, loyalty, and a common goal to make it home safely at the end of each shift.
