Reviews

"A Milwaukee Inheritance is, as advertised, a loving, knowing paean to the Cream City, itself, but also to our great American middle--about which not enough can be written--and as such has its own honest inheritances in Howells, Anderson, Bellow, Gass, Oates, Dybek--all heroes and--among whom David Milofsky's measured, poignant, plain-spoke midwestern sentences and intelligence stand out vividly. It's a novel that welcomes us."--Richard Ford
"Early in a work, when readers know they're in good hands, they smile and sit back to enjoy the ride. David Milofsky brings that skill to the subtle and wise story of a marriage's loving mistakes and understandings."--Joanne Greenberg
"Milofsky packs his classic you‐can't‐go‐home‐again tale with entertaining twists and layers of conflict. Add to that a young man's turmoil about morality, friendship, marriage, children, and his role in the world and you have a book that needs to be read."--Patricia Skalka
