At The Armsby Robert Barry Kaplan

Managing an apartment building was pretty simple for the most part. I had a few responsibilities, such as keeping the plants watered and making sure everyone paid the rent on time, but other than that, unless someone had a problem--like a dripping faucet or a clogged up sink--I could pretty much do what I wanted.
The protagonist of At The Arms is intelligent and educated, but he's not particularly ambitious. He enjoys the company of women, but he can't maintain a relationship. He's happy to dwell in his own little world, but when circumstances force him into a drab and gloomy apartment as the building's on-site manager, he discovers a world much bigger than anything he ever imagined.
As he gets to know the other tenants in his building, he inevitably learns more about himself. Whether it's the beautiful woman he can't stop fantasizing about, the frustrated artist across the courtyard, or the sex-crazed vegetable man, each one touches him in some way, and each one has an unusual story to tell.
Combining suburban melodrama, sexual fantasy, offbeat humor, and a healthy dose of the bizarre, At The Arms mixes the outlandish with the mundane in a comic fable about everyday life.
