Find out why the Dude abides in this complete illustrated history of the greatest cult film of all time. It'll really tie your room together. Whether battling nihilists or simply bowling and drinking Caucasians, the Dude abides.

Few other cinematic heroes can claim to have inspired festivals, burlesque shows and even a religion (Dudeism). In time for the fifteenth anniversary of The Big Lebowski, film author and curator Jenny M. Jones tells the full story of the Dude, from the Coen brothers' original idea to how the film secured its place in cinema history.

Achievers, as Lebowski fans call themselves, will discover many hidden truths about the Dude and his circle. Interspersed throughout are interviews with cast and crew that paint a vivid picture of what it was like to create a movie so unlike any other and guest essays by prominent experts on the language, art and music of The Big Lebowski.
