This is a reflective, funny account of one of the most popularTV sitcoms ever made: "Seinfeld "(1990-1998). Ostensibly a show "about nothing," its creator Larry David decreed that it should contain "no hugging, no learning."Nicholas Mirzoeff explores Seinfeld s obsession with the rules of everyday lifein the key areas of comedy itself: dating, relationships, Jewishness and how to be a New Yorker, wherever you happen to live. Mirzoeff situates Seinfeld as an expression of Clinton-era America, from its consistently ironic take on social life, to the changing culture of sexuality and ethnicity.This is a reflective, funny and occasionally digressive account of what it is to watch television."
NICHOLAS MIRZOEFF is Director of the Visual Culture program at New York University, USA.
