Review: I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: 20th Anniversary by Ben Peskoe, Bill Green, Will Russell, Scott Shuffitt
I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: 20th Anniversary - Jesse Russell,Bill Green,Ben Peskoe,Scott Shuffitt

On the twentieth anniversary of the Coen brothers' cult classic film, the ultimate fan's guide to The Big Lebowski, with a foreword by the Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, and a new afterword by writer and film critic Daphne Merkin.

 

When it was first released in 1998, The Big Lebowski flopped at the box office. Twenty years later, the movie has developed a massive, passionate, and cross-generational cult following of Lebowski fans (a.k.a. Achievers), who yearly coalesce around Lebowski Fest, the film-screening/party where bowling pins tumble, costumes abound, and White Russians are the official drink of choice--"kind of a 'Star Trek' convention, but without all the geeks"(Associated Press).

 

Written by the Founding Dudes of Lebowski Fest--and with a foreword by El Duderino himself, Jeff Bridges--this new edition of I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski also features contemporary reflections on the movie by acclaimed writer and former New Yorker film critic Daphne Merkin. This is the fan book to tie every Achiever's room together, a treasure trove of trivia and commentary, illustrations, photos, interviews with every major cast member (plus the real-life inspirations for the Coen-created characters), highlights from the Fest, a handy Achiever translation guide, and tips on how to Dude-ify your life. I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski is a raucous and hilarious celebration of the greatest film ever made (condolences, Citizen Kane) and of the glorious revelry that continues in its two-decade wake.

 

 

If you were a fan of the movie then this book is a must read. If you have not watched it, watch it and then come back and read the book. But really either way you should be familiar with the movie.

The book was almost a guide to the movie and it was fun and very enjoyable to read. What can you expect from the book? A lot. Obviously humor and a whole lot more. We get a good look behind the scenes, many pictures of scenes, characters and locations. As well interviews with the cast and crew. Plus some other really fun stuff.

Overall, like I said if you liked the movie you will love this book.

I rate it 5★ it was quick, fun and very informative read.

Reading progress update: I've read 52 out of 193 pages.
Ice: 50th Anniversary Edition (Penguin Classics) - Kate Zambreno,Anna Kavan,Jonathan Lethem

the Forward by Jonathan Lethem warned me: it's weird; the narrative indulges in "causal slippages"; it can feel like Beckett or Kafka; it's hard to define, but call it SF/dystopian if that works for you; and, worst of all, because I don't like the film, its effect resembles that of the film Last Year at Marienbad (continuously recursive).

 

I therefore started this book a wee bit nervous...and yet, and yet...so far I love it!! I guess I'm in the mood for something like this, something like a weird dream. not sure how it will ultimately rank with me, but set against the fact that books written like this usually wear out their welcome with me very fast--eccentricities begin to grate, etc.--is the fact that Ice is rather short, and likely will be wrapping up just when i need logic and linearity in my picks. I repeat: so far, I'm impressed!

I had never heard of this SF novel from 1967, until I spotted this Penguin Classics/50th Anniversary Edition for sale. that seems odd--big-deal novel celebrating its 50th (hey! cool!), and yet, not on my radar until a month or so ago. must investigate! love the cover.
