We are pleased to announce that an interview with Wussy’s Lisa Walker is featured in Adam Nayman’s gorgeous new hardcover book The Coen Brothers: This Book Really Ties the Films Together. Other interviewees include frequent Coen collaborators such as Carter Burwell and Roger Deakins! 🎳
“.. film critic Adam Nayman carefully sifts through [the Coens’] complex cinematic universe in an effort to plot, as he puts it, ‘some Grand Unified Theory of Coen-ness’. The book combines critical text—biography, close film analysis, and enlightening interviews with key Coen collaborators—with a visual aesthetic that honors the Coens’ singular mix of darkness and levity. Featuring film stills, beautiful and evocative illustrations, punchy infographics, and hard insight, this book will be the definitive exploration of the Coen brothers’ oeuvre.”
In the interview, Walker discusses how The Big Lebowski, and Donny’s character in particular, inspired her to write Forever Sounds’ soaring anthem “Donny’s Death Scene”.
