"An important piece of cultural documentation" * Irish Times *
"Edwards does an admirable job of profiling Murray's unique approach to life, friendship, and work, via interviews with the actor himself as well as friends, collaborators, and those acquaintances. The book is bursting with anecdotes that underline Murray's unconventional and fun-loving life: he's commandeered a street cleaner, crashed an off-campus house party and started doing the dishes, and driven a cab while the cabby practiced playing saxophone in the back seat... Murray's fans are sure to savor this book and walk away with a deeper appreciation of the actor and his work." * Publishers Weekly *
