Life’s Revolving Doors Lead a Man – And a Dog – To Happiness

[ad_1]

Vince Mastroianni’s new book, Revolving Doors: A Man and His Dog’s Search for the Perfect Housemate, is a humorous, yet inspirational account of one man’s – and one dog’s – attempts to begin a new life and find the “perfect housemate.” Mastroianni peppers his book with real-life experiences that are so bizarre, you know they can’t be made up.

Readers – especially baby boomers — who have gone through a divorce or have begun a new life in another place – either in life or geographically – can relate to Mastroianni’s struggle to begin again and to find someone to share life with. Sandy, Mastroianni’s golden retriever, brings humor and understanding to the real situations that we must face when slashing through the brambles of one life while searching for another.

Some of Mastroianni’s experiences are hilarious, like his forays to the beach house, shared with a few zany others who were also looking to escape reality. Through the good times and bad, crazy and sad, Sandy stuck by his side and was the rock he leaned on during his failing ‘training’ marriage and his subsequent attempt to find the “perfect housemate.”

You’ll laugh at the uproarious account of Mastroianni’s 1998 search for a buried case of 1982 Chateau Latour during an FYI treasure hunt contest conducted by Forbes Magazine. He won the contest and celebrated the victory with the staff of Forbes in their New York City corporate headquarters wine cellar.

There are touching stories about Vince and his dog, Sandy, and the traumas of letting go of a loved one, material things and of having to share some things when you just want to move on with your own life. You’ll experiencing Vince and Sandy bonding in a way that benefits them both – Sandy, having lost his mistress meets new and interesting human friends and Vince, leaning on Sandy for companionship and even wisdom.

Mastroianni’s book, Revolving Doors, is filled with humorous, yet problematical stories and people who eventually grow up – but getting there is a journey that most of us can relate to. Mastroianni’s book is like having a great conversation with a good friend that you’ve known all your life and that you’ve both had experiences you can relate to.

Revolving Doors: A Man and His Dog’s Search for the Perfect Housemate, is a light and short read – but will make you laugh and give you hope and inspiration (if needed) that you can begin life over again, no matter how deep the hurt and how far your search takes you. Vince Mastroianni and Sandy finally find their ‘perfect housemate’ in the form of Maria (a.k.a. “The Contessa”) and now lives happily in Arlington, Virginia, where he’s avidly pursuing his new hobby – writing.
