Inhaltsangabe: A Moment of Rage in Suburbia...

In the crushing complacency of suburbia, mid-life crises pop in on men's lives unannounced. For one Long Island podiatrist, it takes an impromptu act of vandalism just to make him aware of his own being. Walking home in the sub-zero wind chill of a Friday night, he stumbles on a bottle of horseradish and mindlessly hurls it through the window of a popular store selling over-sexed tween fashions. This one tiny, out-of-character impulse turns his life vivid and terrifying, triggering waves of fear, crooked cops, and suspicions of antisemitism, both accurate and paranoid.

The story is told by this same podiatrist, an often hysterical, endearingly wide-eyed, and entirely nameless narrator, to what he regards as the perfect audience: a comatose college friend. Yet, our narrator s most unique quality lies simply in his glowing love for his wife Alyse, the girl of his dreams whom he met in college and still can t quite believe he attained. She is the mother of his two children, Esme and Charlie, who are just starting to come into their own minds and experiencing their first encounters with prejudice.

Prior to the bottle throwing incident, our narrator had just enough going on to keep him interested in his own life. Now he s way too interested. Friends and neighbors push his new intrigue-filled existence into wildly unpredictable places, especially nineteen year old Audra Uziel, a long-time patient whose plantar warts have given way to brilliance, rebelliousness, sexiness, and a taste for happily married men.

And oh: Audra also happens to be the daughter of Nat Uziel, self-proclaimed neighborhood patriarch business owner and owner of the store whose window the horseradish bottle smashed. Nat, always loudly on the lookout for antisemitism, doesn't know the true culprit but doesn't let that stop him from whipping his neighborhood into a frenzy, forcing our narrator into hiding in plain sight.

Pushed to the edge by his own desires, despairs, and disappointments, our narrator is about to find out what it s like to become a criminal, and what his excruciatingly dull neighborhood looks like when it s been turned upside down.

Chock full of heart and humor, It Won't Always Be This Great, the debut novel of former Seinfeld writer Peter Mehlman, shows how one man's story is never really his story alone it's the story of his family, of his friends, of those he neglected, of those he remembers, of his enemies, and of his hopes, failures, dreams, and realities. And how one snap decision can change the course of a life.

Über den Autor: After graduating from the University of Maryland, Peter Mehlman, a New York native, became a writer for the Washington Post. He slid to television in 1982, writing for SportsBeat with Howard Cosell. From 1985-90, he returned to forming full sentences as a writer for numerous national publications including The New York Times Magazine, GQ, Esquire, and a multitude of women's magazines due to his advanced understanding of that gender.

In 1989, he moved to Los Angeles, where he bumped into Larry David, whom he'd met twice in New York. David, developing a little show with Jerry Seinfeld, invited Mehlman to submit a sample script. Having never written one, Mehlman sent a humor piece he'd written for the Times Magazine,and got an assignment, which became the first Seinfeld freelance episode, The Apartment. Over the eight-year run of the show, Mehlman rose to executive producer and coined such Seinfeld-isms as Yada Yada spongeworthy, shrinkage,. and double-dipping.

In 1997, Mehlman joined DreamWorks and created It's like, you know..., a scathing look at Los Angeles. In recent years, he has written screenplays, a novel, and humor pieces for NPR, , Esquire, The New York Times, The Washington Post,, and , The Los Angeles Times, several of which were published in his collection, ,Mandela Was Late,.

In addition, he has also appeared on-camera for TNT Sports and the Webby-nominated Peter Mehlman's Narrow World of Sports, while also starring in his short film Blank, for which he won best writing at the Los Angeles Comedy Festival.

He lives in Los Angeles. This is his first book of fiction.

For one Long Island podiatrist, it takes an impromptu act of vandalism just to make him aware of his own being. Walking home in the sub-zero wind chill of a Friday night, he stumbles on a bottle of horseradish and mindlessly hurls it through the window of a popular store selling clothes to over-sexed tweens. This one tiny, out-of-character impulse turns his life upside-down, triggering waves of terrifying fear, crooked cops, and charges of anti-Semitism.

Yet, our narrator s most unique quality lies simply in his glowing love for his wife Alyse, the girl of his dreams whom he met in college and still can t quite believe he managed to marry. She is the mother of his two children, Esme and Charlie, who are just starting to come into their own minds and experiencing their first encounters with prejudice.
