Photographs by Jeff Mermelstein. Text by Marvin Heiferman.
powerHouse Books, New York, 2003. 128 pp., 75 color illustrations, 13¼x8¼".

Ok, let it be said right now: you have got to get this book. Why? Because comedy is healing, and you are going to laugh so much that you’ll cure whatever ails you. Not because the work is silly or juvenile; you will laugh at the sheer absurdity of modern life and how we look living it. Mermelstein has been photographing for over 20 years, honing his snapshot style, clearly ranking up there with Winogrand and Friedlander. Early assignments to cover animal acting seem to have led him into a surreal world of everyday oddities including animal shows, our National Parks, and book conventions. "I still feel the excitement of hugging Zippy [the chimpanzee, cover image above]," Mermelstein recalls, "and watching and photographing him in his bus and as he entertained at a bar mitzvah on Long Island." With a statement like that you know you’re in for a good time. Read Publisher's Description.
