The Tao of Bill Murray: Real-Life Stories of Joy, Enlightenment, and Party Crashing
Even if the only movie Bill Murray made was Lost in Translation, he would still be a major movie star. He has made considerably more movies—some of his best with the director Wes Anderson. The gist of this book is that Murray is unpredictable, unreachable, and a little bit dangerous. Upon reading of his exploits, the reader is sure to see them as sweet or incredibly stupid. While his accessibility to his fans is laudable, there are many occasions when he is reported by this book to act like a real jerk. James Garner said, “He’s only making an ass of himself” while commenting on Murray’s golf antics. Personally, I have always enjoyed Murray’s appearances on the Letterman show, and his films are some of my favorites. That being said, I really didn’t see any “tao” in the book but rather a straight-forward biography. Perhaps the elusive Murray is a bit unknowable. I expected to like this book a lot more than I did.
