BOOK REVIEW: Life’s Work, By David Milch

Life’s Work is a memoir by famed TV producer David Milch, who counts NYPD Blue and Deadwood among his credits. Milch’s story also touches on his considerable vices, including substance abuse and gambling. It’s a quick read, at 276 pages, and much of the book plays as though Milch is sitting next to you on a park bench, sharing his life story.

Milch grew up in Buffalo. His father was a surgeon who dabbled in organized crime, at times operating on wounded mobsters. He was also an abusive alcoholic, and his son turned to alcohol early in life.
