Offerman has authored three other books including Gumption, is the co-author of The Greatest Love Story Ever Told, and publishes the Donkey Thoughts Substack newsletter. Born in Joliet, Ill., and raised in nearby Minooka, he now lives in L.A. with his wife and fellow actor Megan Mullally.

As the founding member and leader of the Grammy Award winning American rock band Wilco, and before that the cofounder of the alt‐country band Uncle Tupelo, Jeff Tweedy is one of contemporary music’s most accomplished songwriters, musicians, and performers. Jeff has released three solo albums, written original songs for eleven Wilco albums, and is the author of two New York Times’ Bestsellers, Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back) and How to Write One Song. Most recently, Jeff writes and publishes music weekly in his Substack newsletter, Starship Casual. Originally from Belleville, Ill., he lives in Chicago with his family.
