A Lot Can Happen in the Middle of Nowhere

Middle of Nowhere book jacket.

Todd Melby (MSJ87)

The true story of the Coen Brothers’ epic film of murder, mayhem, and malfeasance on the frozen landscapes of Minneapolis and North Dakota, offering an inside look into what Roger Ebert called “one of the best films I’ve ever seen.”

Library Journal’s verdict: “Much like the movie it dissects, this book is quirky and intelligent, with surprising revelations. A treat for cinephiles and fans of the Coen brothers.”

“A Lot Can Happen in the Middle of Nowhere” features a foreword by William H. Macy, dissects actor audition tapes, early versions of the script, and much more.
