Best Comedy Books of 2014

As some of you may know from checking out my Publications page or some of my previous posts, I served as Developmental Editor for former Seinfeld writer Peter Mehlman’s debut novel, It Won’t Always Be This Great. And while I would say “I’m not one to brag,” that’d be a bald-faced lie. I can’t help myself — just check this out! The novel made the top FIVE of The Washington Post’s Best Comedy Books of 2014!! Can I get a “Huzzah”?

Here’s the clip from Rachel Dry’s December 2014 article, “The Best Comedy Books of 2014“:

It Won’t Always Be This Great

By Peter Mehlman (Bancroft)

What would the internal monologue of a Long Island podiatrist embroiled in community intrigue sound like if the good doctor had some of the neuroses and self-perception of “Seinfeld”?

That question — a surprisingly entertaining one — is what Peter Mehlman explores in his first novel.

Mehlman served as an executive producer on “Seinfeld” and is credited with coining such immortal Seinfeldisms as “yada yada” and “shrinkage.”

There aren’t any catchphrases here, but he has brought sweetly funny family dynamics, with a side of low-stakes “Law & Order” plot, to life.
