A sports-crazed kid from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, Gary David Goldberg never imagined he’d end up in Hollywood, let alone make it big there. But as a twenty-five-year-old waiter in Greenwich Village he met Diana, the love of his life; followed her out to Northern California; then moved in and never moved out. He also, without realizing it, put himself on track to found UBU Productions (named after his beloved Labrador retriever) and become a successful creator of such family sitcoms as Family Ties, Brooklyn Bridge, and Spin City.*

In Sit, Ubu, Sit, award-winning writer/producer Goldberg tells the mostly upbeat, sometimes difficult, and frequently hilarious tale of his improbable career and the people who have filled it.

A love story and a rare behind-the-scenes look at the entertainment industry, Sit, Ubu, Sit proves that it is possible to be creative and successful while holding on to your integrity, your family, and your sense of humor.

*with Bill Lawrence

From the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Goldberg, a TV scriptwriter and producer, fondly recalls his rocky, improbable route to Hollywood success, including the people who helped him along the way. Funny, dry and self-deprecating, Goldberg cuts swiftly through the years, from the mid-1950s growing up in a loving extended Jewish family in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, to his scruffy vagabonding in 1972 in Europe with his pregnant girlfriend, Diana, and their canny Labrador dog, Ubu. He sold his first scripts to TV shows in the 1970s, prompting his move from New York to California with Diana, who opened a day-care center. Goldberg took a class with scriptwriter Nate Monaster, who motivated him and helped submit his work to Los Angeles producers. Soon enough, Goldberg's scripts for the Bob Newhart Show, the Tony Randall Show and the MTM empire gave him the clout to start his own company, UBU (named for the beloved dog he eventually gave away, by the by), launching such pilots as Family Ties for the networks. Indeed, Goldberg's memoir is a kind of love letter to longtime partner Diana as well as to Michael J. Fox, with whom he later worked on Spin City. His professed guilt for making fistfuls of money while making people laugh renders this work effortlessly likable. (Feb.)

5つ星のうち 5.0 Excellent autobiography about a terrific writer/producer 2016/10/29
投稿者 southjerseygma - (
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Terrific autobiography. I read it all in one day. Gary David Goldberg demonstrates why he was a successful TV writer and why he had a Top-10 show on TV for a while in the 1980's ("Family Ties", of course). It was fascinating reading about how he got into writing, his first sale, and some behind-the-scenes stuff about Family Ties that wasn't covered on any of the DVD extras for the show. Reading about Goldberg's childhood in Brooklyn, his relationship with his older brother, and about himself in general revealed where he got a lot of the ideas for Steven & Elyse Keaton and for Steven Keaton's brother Rob.

Like all good autobiographies (including Michael J. Fox's), Goldberg is very frank and doesn't take himself too seriously. It's not self-serving at all.

Highly recommended read - especially if you watched any of Goldberg's shows. I'm very glad he took the time to sit down and write this before his untimely passing in 2013.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Great Book!!! Touching and reminiscent of Goldberg's classic TV series, "Brooklyn Bridge" 2013/2/16

This book can bring you laughter and tears and we zigzag through Gary David Goldberg's life. The obvious love he shares with wife Diana comes shining through and the personification of Ubu is marvelous. The actual events in his life (creating Family Ties, Spin City, Brooklyn Bridge) that would lead to a reader picking up the book pale in comparison with the personal tales of the author. As he weaves the tale of his youth we can see that "Brooklyn Bridge" (why has this series never been released on DVD?) is the story of gary and his older brother, Stanley, his parents and grandparents - especially his grandmother who was a not so stereotypical matriarch. There are no dead spots in this volume. I recommend it highly!

5つ星のうち 4.0 Marvelous Writing... but the production 2008/2/10
投稿者 enubrius - (

Gary David Goldberg is the creator/co-creator of three major television series. Two of them were smash hits; the third was one of the best shows ever on and thus, almost by definition (alas), a flop. For the record they were/are "Family Ties", "Spin City", and the brilliant "Brooklyn Bridge". This memoir is on a par with any/all of them and will bring a smile and a tear to any sentient reader. Having said that, one must follow up with: "What's wrong with you people at Harmony Books?!?! Don't you have any respect for a (minor) classic?" The binding on, at least my copy of, the book seems "tenuous" at best; and where's the photo section the book cries out for? (Yes, the are photos on the end-papers... unidentified and uncaptioned). This is a fine reading experience. One can only wish that the publishing attained even half the level of the writing.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Sit Ubu Sit!! 2008/3/8
投稿者 lyndajean23 - (

This is a warm, funny, book that starts when he was out on his own, with his wife, and dog, UBU, and needed to give blood for money and his wife held up a $10.00 bill that he got (in Europe) reviving him after he passed out and woke up in an alley. There were many funny comments, and Gary's wife seems sweet, and it just basically tells about his life and how he got going in show business.
It is an entertaining book. You have to read it and see. It's definitely worth reading! There's so much more to talk about, but I do want to say that certain parts make you laugh out loud!! He's great!!
5つ星のうち 5.0 Down to earth account of an extraordinary life 2013/10/14

As a big MJF fan I was keen to read about the man who created Family Ties and participated in the creation of Spin City. What I came away with was a profound admiration for Gary Goldberg. What a lovely man. What an interesting life. What a great writer.

Do yourself a favour and read this one.
