Peter Mehlman’s “It Won’t Always Be This Great” Featured on New York Post’s “This week’s must-read books”


“Debut novelist Mehlman is a former “Seinfeld” writer (“yada, yada,” “spongeworthy”), so you get an idea of his sensibilities. In this tale, a 51-year-old Long Island podiatrist twists his ankle on a bottle of horseradish on the ground, and in a rage tosses the bottle through a store window. Amid cries of anti-Semitism, the wrong man is arrested. Add an “American Beauty”-style infatuation with the teen daughter of the store owner and a host of other Seinfeldian connections, and you have a twisted but thought-provoking and humorous take on suburban family life.”
