The Phoenix of Hotel Freds tells of the resurrection of a lovable rogue, a true picaro, and that resurrection is of course preceded by retribution, which follows transgression, hard on the heels of temptation. We join the tale in its middle, as it unfolds squarely and heavily in the midst of the retribution. The particulars of the temptation and transgression are left largely to our imaginations, an easy feat given the amply illustrated self-destructive appetites and over-indulgences of the protagonist. But seldom has any protagonist been as unflinchingly honest with himself, as unwilling to pass the buck, or more determined to hold himself accountable for his choices. 

This picaresque entails multiple compendia--of pop culture, recent film, music, food, drink, fashion, digital lore, and the road trips of the hip crowd that gathers at Fred's in Fort Worth--and always in service of the tale. Whether the resurrection of this unique phoenix can also lead ultimately to his redemption hangs in the balance, and five diversely memorable women have big says in the pitched battle for the soul of Mateo Marquez. 

It is his distinctive voice we hear throughout, in its insistent allusions, over-the-top tropes, and strangely endearing raunchiness--two parts wise guy and one part pure sage. Part confessional, part commentary on the suburban rat race, part case study in family dynamics, part guidebook to the digital era, part inspirational message, The Phoenix of Hotel Freds speaks in numerous ways to multiple readers, and always from the heart.

Book Description Lulu.com, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Phoenix Of Hotel Freds, by first time author Mateo Marquez, is a passionately poignant tale of self-discovery and resurrection in the digital age. Tony Robbins meets Hunter S. Thompson on Facebook, Marquez has already shown his potential as a contemporary messenger for translating timeless life governing principles in a searingly relevant 2010 package. The uniquely colorful, metaphor-laden writing style and creative sense of humor seen in his myriad essays, blogs and online posts have allowed a glimpse into the method and madness of this emerging contemporary wordsmith. The Phoenix Of Hotel Freds is an Attention Deficit Disorder friendly handbook for cultivating and nurturing value-creating partnerships in life. It is the graphic tale of a man who lost everything that mattered to him, burned his impostor life of lies to the ground and rose from the ashes, born again and on fire, finally free to fly in honesty, light and fulfillment.
