Two Gentlemen of Lebowski: A Most Excellent Comedie and Tragical Romance Cover

 

 

Excerpt

“Adam Bertocci has done a stellar job fusing the spirit of Shakespeare with The Big Lebowski. This mashup is one for the ages.”

Scott Shuffitt, cofounding Dude of LebowskiFest and coauthor of I’m a Lebowski, You’re a Lebowski“A blast to read.”

GQ“Oh my God . . . This is so good.”

The New Republic“Classic lines and scenes now become even more epic.”

USA Today“Gadzooks, methinks ’tis all as fine a way to waste an hour or so as I have come across in these four seasons.”

Entertainment Weekly“The mash-up that toke its time in coming.”

Time Out New York“Proves that Shakespearean sharp-tongued eloquence is nifty even in the 21st century, if wielded correctly. The play also proved that [The Big Lebowski] was quite Shakespearean to begin with.”

Inside New York“It's wonderful.”

­Metro (UK)“Should be quite the what-have-you.”

Gothamist

"Arguably one of the most inventive pieces ever created.”

Broadway World

The book looks at how the film is rich in philosophical implications, whether it is the nihilism within the film itself or the Dudeism the film has spawned. Covering issues raised concerning gender and sexuality within the film such as Maudeand#8217;s feminism and Jackie Treehornand#8217;s chauvinistic character, the book also explores the gender divides the film has created in todayand#8217;s society such as male vs female fandom rivalry at festivals. The Big Lebowski festivals have sprung up all around America and have even expanded globally, the book takes an in-side look at these events and includes interviews from Lebowski festival organisers and authors of other fan books and academic books.
