Like Brothers

Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass

Published by Ballantine Books in Hardback (£22.50) on 17-05-2018

Multitalented writers, directors, producers, and actors Jay and Mark Duplass share the secrets of their lifelong partnership in this unique memoir about the joys and frustrations of intimate collaboration.

  • “Hilarious…The Duplass Brothers’ entertaining and energetic memoir gives their fans a clear look at the creative genius that drives them.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A thoroughly enjoyable peek into the brothers’ creative process, filled with tips and guidance for those who want to follow in their footsteps.”


  • “As creative partners, we sure learned a thing or two from Mark and Jay Duplass’s journey through the Hollywood machine. Like Brothers is an essential guide for making space for yourself in a world that doesn’t always encourage individuality and innovation. As useful to an aspiring filmmaker as it is to a pair of siblings wondering ‘How do we turn our connection into something great?’ this book will be essential on your shelf.”

    Lena Dunham & Jenni Konner

  • “As a writing team and directing team, we love seeing two people who are more intelligent and articulate than us explore the dynamic that we don’t have the depth or self-reflectiveness to explore ourselves.”

    Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg
