I’m A Lebowski, You’re A Lebowski: Life, The Big Lebowski and What-Have-You

Bill Green, Ben Peskoe, Will Russell, Scott Shuffitt
Foreword by Jeff Bridges

The Ultimate Guide to the Coen Brothers’ Cult Classic Film The Big Lebowski from the creators of Lebowski Fest

“A way out west there was a fella, fella I want to tell you about, fella by the name of Jeff Lebowski. At least, that was the handle his lovin’ parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. This Lebowski, he called himself the Dude…”

In 1998, the Coen Brothers followed the global success of their smash hit Fargo with a rambling tale of lies, corruption and bowling in early 90s L.A. – The Big Lebowski. It flopped at the box office. But in the years that followed, the movie took on a life of its own, spawning a culture of quotable lines, White Russians and even Lebowski Fest, an annual event attracting thousands of Big Lebowski die-hards. I’m a Lebowski, You’re a Lebowski, the curators of Lebowski Fest, offer the complete guide to one of the few true cult movies of the last twenty years, with photographs, real locations and interviews with the stars of the film, including John Turturro, John Goodman and Julianne Moore– and a foreword by the Dude himself, Jeff Bridges. The book also contains a glossary, trivia questions and the ultimate soundtrack listing – in other words, the whole Lebowski.

Within the pages of this book, you’ll find out how to order a White Russian like an Achiever and read interviews with the real-life eccentrics who inspired the film’s main characters, the actors who played them, and the famous siblings who conjured the whole thing up.
