A deranged groundskeeper. A bellowing lounge singer. A paranormal exterminator. A cantankerous weatherman. Only one man could play all of these roles: William James "Bill" Murray, America's greatest national treasure. He's the sort of actor who can play Hamlet and Charlie's Angels in the same year. He shuns managers and agents, and once mistakenly agreed to voice the part of Garfield because he believed it was a Coen brothers film. He's famous for crashing house parties all over New York City--and if he keeps photobombing random strangers he might just break the internet. From his childhood lugging golf bags at an upscale country club to his first taste of success on Saturday Night Live, from his starring roles in Hollywood blockbusters to his reinvention as a hipster icon for the 21st century, The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray chronciles every aspect of his extraordinary life and career. Part biography, part critical appreciation, part love letter, and all fun, this enormous full-color volume covers every Murray performance in loving detail, recounting all of the milestones, legendary "Murray Stories," and controversies in the life of this enigmatic performer. It's packed with photos, movie stills, fan art, and much, much more!
