Overview

LOOK INSIDE THE BOOK
First released in 1998, the Coen brothers' The Big Lebowski flopped at the box office. But over the past nine years the movie has developed a massive and passionate cult following, led by the creation of Lebowski Fest, a traveling festival of all things Lebowski. Held in a bowling alley, it features bowling, costume and trivia contests, live music, a screening of the movie, White Russians, and what-haveyou. Attendance has grown exponentially and the Fest has been featured in virtually every national media outlet, from NPR to the New York Times. The Associated Press called it "kind of a 'Star Trek' convention, but without all the geeks." The Wall Street Journal simply intoned: "One hell of a party!" Now, at last, comes the book that the legion of Lebowski fans (aka Achievers) has been waiting for.
I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski is a treasure trove of trivia and commentary, hilarious throughout and copiously illustrated, including stills from the film, as well as dozens of photos taken on the set by Jeff Bridges. It includes interviews with virtually every major and minor cast member, as well as the real-life individuals who served as inspiration for the characters in the movie. The book features a handy guide to speaking Achiever (example: in English you would say that a woman is "feminine, or ladylike"; an Achiever would call her "strongly vaginal"), tips on how to Dude-ify your car, office, and living space, Lebowski Fest highlights, and so much more.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“It's safe to say the executive bums of Lebowski Fest Will Russell, Scott Shuffitt and Bill Green are the national experts on "The Big Lebowski," what David Gergen is to White House politics. If CNN needed a talking head to opine about white Russians and the condition Lebowski is in, they'd interview these guys.” —The Courier-Journal (Louisville, Kentucky)
