My Seinfeld Year

While immersed in reruns of Seinfeld, I read Fred Stoller's short Kindle memoir, My Seinfeld Year, about working on the show. He writes in a straightforward, somewhat complaining way, and I couldn't tell at times if he was saying things for laughs or if he was serious. If serious, he came across as a little too bitter and self-pitying. I really like the loser-ish aspect of his on screen persona, but didn't think it worked so well in writing. I was interested in the different anecdotes about working on the show, and was a bit disappointed, although not at all surprised, to learn that Larry David is an asshole.
