From the back jacket: Apart from its brilliance as television, it's amazing what Deadwood gets away with. This acclaimed series from HBO, which premiered in 2004, is set in the teeming outlaw camp of Deadwood. It has been described by Variety as 'a vulgar, gritty, at times downright nasty take on the Old West brimming with all the dark genius that series creator and screenwriter extraordinaire David Milch has at his fingertips." It's all this and more.
An international cast of authoritative contributors assess Deadwood's many facets: its profane language; its characters, from Al Swearengen (who lives up to his name) and Calamity Jane, to E.B. Farnum and Mr. Wu, and its place in the western genre. There are also considerations of Deadwood and serial fiction, prostitution, the making of American civil society, as well as Deadwood's Chinese, the opening credits, the Reverend Smith, and much more. Episode and character guides complete the book: the Deadwood companion for fans and students to swear by.
