Humor from Max Features
Books from Max Features are just for fun. You’re invited to visit the zany world of “Max” Dan Mayhew’s alter-ego. He’s somewhere between Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck with a dash of Lake Woebegone. When you settle down with a book from Max Features, prepare to smile or chuckle or maybe even laugh out loud. Click the logo for a listing of books from Max Features.
Dan began writing humor for several Northwest papers back in the 1980s. Originally, he wrote as “Max Jacobson” in honor of his dad, Max Jacob Mayhew, and to protect the identity of his family who figures prominently in many of his columns. Alas, he soon discovered that there was a real Max Jacobson who wrote reviews of restaurants and nightspots for the LA Times. Since the only nightspot that Dan knew anything about was a 24 hour Arco near his house, and to avoid legal retaliation from The Times, he abandoned the pseudonym keeping “Max” as his persona. At right is a portrait of the artist as a small child.
