The Tao of Bill Murray - Real-life Stories of Joy, Enlightenment, and Party Crashing

Gavin Edwards

For the Bill Murray fan in all of us, this epic collection of "Bill Murray stories"-many reported for the first time here-distills a set of guiding principles out of his extraordinary ability to infuse the everyday with surprise, absurdity, and wonder. No one will ever believe you. New York Times bestselling author Gavin Edwards, like the rest of us, has always been fascinated with Bill Murray-in particular the beloved actor's adventures off-screen, which rival his filmography for sheer entertainment value. Edwards traveled to the places where Murray has lived, worked, and partied, in search of the most outrageous and hilarious Bill Murray stories from the past four decades, many of which have never before been reported. Bill once paid a child five dollars to ride his bike into a swimming pool. The star convinced Harvard's JV women's basketball team to play with him in a private game of hoops. Many of these surreal encounters ended with Bill whispering, "No one will ever believe you" into a stranger's ear. But The Tao of Bill Murray is more than just a collection of wacky anecdotes. A sideways mix of comedy and philosophy, full of photo bombs, late-night party crashes, and movie-set antics, this is the perfect book for anyone who calls themselves a Bill Murray fan-which is to say, everyone. Praise for The Tao of Bill Murray "When confronted by life's challenges and opportunities, we should all be asking ourselves, 'What would Bill Murray do?' This book actually has the answers."-Jay Duplass, writer, director, actor, fan of Bill Murray "[Gavin Edwards] captures Murray's enigmatic, comic genius."-The Washington Post "Rib-tickling."-Newsday "If you are among the multitudes who have a Bill Murray story (viz: 'I was in the airport bar, and who sat down next to me but Bill Murray?'), The Tao of Bill Murray will speak to you."-Elle "Murray is an endless delight, and his knack for bons mots and non sequiturs will keep readers laughing before revealing an unexpectedly poignant vision for happiness. . . .
