by Artie Mangravito
Elaine’s middle name…the special quality of Kramer’s jacket…the strange powers of the black-and-white cookie…the original title of War and Peace. Do you ever find yourself pondering these and other situations from the weekly escapades of the television show Seinfeld? Do you quote scenes from the show only to have your friends not quite understand or appreciate the depth of humor? Do you identify with the characters on the show and the situations in which they find themselves?
Artie Mangravito answered yes to all of these questions and chose to do something about it. He compiled the wit and wisdom of the show to share with his fellow Seinfeld fans, and now those who don’t quite get it can open the vault and have a forum through which to develop an appreciation. The result is the fun and challenging trivia collection, How Well Do You Know Jerry…and His Friends?: A Trivia Book.
Whether you are a longtime fan tuning in again and again for the laughs or a newcomer trying to get a grip on the intricate personal interplay and subplots, Artie’s book will offer hours of thought, insight, and enjoyment.
