The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray
A Monumental Study of the World’s Greatest Actor
by Robert Schnakenberg
He’s the sort of actor who can do Hamlet and Charlie’s Angels in the same year. He shuns managers and agents and once agreed to voice the
part of Garfield because he mistakenly believed it was a Coen brothers film. Bill Murray’s extraordinary career is rich with fascinating anecdotes, contradictions, and mystery, from his early success on Saturday Night Live and the biggest blockbusters of the 1980s (Caddyshack, Stripes,
Tootsie, Ghostbusters) to his reinvention as a hipster icon in the early 21st century (in films like Lost in Translation and Moonrise Kingdom). And now
you can get your fill of Bill: part biography, part critical appreciation, part love letter, and all fun, The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray chronicles
every single Murray performance in loving detail, relating all the milestones, yarns, and controversy in the life of this beloved but enigmatic
performer. These pages are packed with color film stills, extraordinary fan art, and behind-the-scenes photography.
ROBERT SCHNAKENBERG ’s previous books include The Encyclopedia Shatnerica and Christopher Walken A to Z (both, Quirk). He lives in
New York City.
