Now in paperback with new material—a collection of the most epic, hilarious, and strange Bill Murray anecdotes from the past four decades, many of which have never before been made public.
Over the past several years, a cottage industry has sprung up online around “Bill Murray Stories,” real-life anecdotes of unbelievable encounters with the star: Bill Murray attended a student party at St. Andrews and did the dishes afterwards, Bill Murray gave a moving toast at a stranger’s bachelor party, Bill Murray showed up and read poetry to construction workers at a building site. Fans obsessively track these stories, and Gavin Edwards has hunted down the very best of them to make a book that is a sideways mix of comedy and philosophy, full of photo bombs, street corner encounters, late-night party crashes, and movie set antics, an all-access look at Murray’s exceptional ability to infuse the everyday with surprise, absurdity, and wonder.
