Where There's Smoke...: Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man, a Memoir

Where There's Smoke...: Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man, a Memoir by William B. Davis

Review by Suzanne Lanoue 3/31/12

I did enjoy reading most of this book. I will say that I did skim over some of it, especially the first 200 pages.

It's like two books together. The first book is about Davis' early life, including his romances and all of his jobs. He moved around a lot and did a lot of plays as not only an actor but as a director. This takes about 200 pages, and after a while, it all sort of sounds the same.

The other book is about his time on the X-Files. That part is much shorter. To me, it is the more interesting of the two parts. To someone who is interested in directing- they might like the first part better.

You will have to judge for yourself which part you like best. I found it to be somewhat interesting. He does say some things about his co-workers on the show that are worth reading.

I found his writing style a little dense sometimes and hard to read. He grew up in 1950's Canada, so that may have affected the way he speaks and writes. It sounds very old-fashioned to me. He did not want to use a co-writer, like some celebrities do, but he probably should have.
