Seinfeldia by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong (4 out of 5)
This is a great start if you love pop culture and “the show about nothing”. Seinfeld was a show that was unlike anything gracing the airwaves in the 90’s, and years later, new generations continue to discuss that show about nothing. What the author gives all of us is a history lesson. The history of perhaps one of the most offbeat, revered sitcoms of the past twenty years. It’s a quick read, and although much of it is public knowledge in the vast domain known as the Internet, she manages to expound on that more. Seinfeld is a show that only a few of my friends love, so it’s great that this book came along and I can now refer it to any customer looking for a good treatise on the phenomenon known as “Seinfeld”. Seinfeldia is the state of that show and everything connected to it. It was a gas to find a book that tells us what the principle players in front of and behind the camera are up to these days. It’s always nice to put faces to the names, and due to this charming little book about something in the land of nothing, that can be done with anything and anyone involved with Seibfeld through its run. Definitely a great pick for someone who is an old fan, a new fan, or just a fan of 90’s sitcoms in general. A great oral history. It’s out now. Pick up a copy!
