Since their first feature film, Ethan and Joel Coen have developed a devoted following, first as cult filmmakers and ultimately, as mainstream artists who have been nominated for thirteen Academy Awards and have won four Oscars apiece (for Fargo and No Country for Old Men).

The entries in this encyclopedia focus on all aspects of the Coen Brothers’ work—from writing and directing Blood Simple (1983) to their involvement in the forthcoming television series, Fargo, adapted from their 1996 film. This extensive reference contains material on all of the films the brothers have written, produced, and directed, as well as their sideline ventures (plays, screenplays, short stories, etc.). Entries include regular collaborators who have worked in front of the camera (Steve Buscemi, George Clooney, John Goodman, Frances McDormand, John Turturro, etc.) as well as those behind the scenes (there’s even an entry for film editor Roderick Jaynes, the brothers’ nom de plume). Each entry is followed by a bibliography of published sources, both in print and online, making The Coen Brothers Encyclopedia the most comprehensive reference on their body of work.
