The multitalented writers, directors, producers, and actors (as seen on The League, Transparent, and The Mindy Project) share the secrets of their lifelong partnership in this unique memoir. Whether producing, writing, directing, or acting, the Duplass Brothers have made their mark in the world of independent film and television on the strength of their quirky and empathetic approach to storytelling. Now, for the first time, Mark and Jay take readers on a tour of their lifelong partnership in this unique memoir told in essays that share the secrets of their success, the joys and frustrations of intimate collaboration, and the lessons they’ve learned the hard way. From a childhood spent wielding an oversized home video camera in the suburbs of New Orleans to their shared years at the University of Texas in early-nineties Austin, and from the breakthrough short they made on a three-dollar budget to the night their feature film Baghead became the center of a Sundance bidding war, Mark and Jay tell the story of a bond that’s resilient, affectionate, mutually empowering, and only mildly dysfunctional. They are brutally honest about how their closeness sabotaged their youthful romantic relationships, about the jealousy each felt when the other stole the spotlight as an actor (Mark in The League, Jay in Transparent), and about the challenges they faced on the set of their HBO series Togetherness—namely, too much togetherness. But Like Brothers is also a surprisingly practical road map to a rewarding creative partnership. Rather than split all their responsibilities fifty-fifty, the brothers learned to capitalize on each other’s strengths. They’re not afraid to call each other out, because they’re also not afraid to compromise. Most relationships aren’t—and frankly shouldn’t be—as intense as Mark and Jay’s, but their brand of trust, validation, and healthy disagreement has taken them far. Part coming-of-age memoir, part underdog story, and part insider account of succeeding in Hollywood on their own terms, Like Brothers is as openhearted and lovably offbeat as Mark and Jay themselves. “Wright. Ringling. Jonas. I’m sure you could name a bunch of famous brother teams. They’re all garbage compared to Mark and Jay. I can’t wait for you to read this book.”—from the foreword by Mindy Kaling

Is there really such a thing as ‘hearing your calling?’ It has been said that we all have one. If so, will we know when our calling has arrived, even more importantly, will we know how to deal with it. There is also a saying that you are a product of your environment. If that is the case, does that mean if you are raised in an environment that is associated with a lot of violence such as gangs, shooting and killings that will be your destiny also, some say that is the case. In this story, Jaw-long and Frank, (both products of their environment), had been involved in the gangs, shootings and killings, will crush that saying, and will prove all the nay-sayers wrong. And along with their family and friends they will hear their calling, and they will succeed in fulfilling it. And any person or persons, that try to interfere or derail what they are trying to do, or messes with their family, will regret it. Jaw-long escapes the Chinese Mafia. Jaw-long, a master ninja assassin, and his best friend Tao are sitting in a warehouse discussing getting out of the Chinese Mafia. The problem is, the only way out is death for you and your family. Unbeknownst to them, Yingpei Fong, who resented Jaw-long, and is the son of the leader of the Chinese Mafia, was hiding in the shadows listening. After they discovered his presence, he tried to run to inform his father, and Jaw-long caught up to him. A fight ensued, Yingpei was killed and panic takes over Jaw-long and Tao. Jaw-long concluded that now is a better time than ever to escape the Chinese Mafia, so he disappears. Jaw-long meets with Frank in America, and an unbreakable bond is formed. Jaw-long, his wife and son, now lives with Frank, his wife and their three kids. They consider themselves family not friends and they have a very strong spiritual bond. The fact that they are different races is not a factor at all. Along with their friends, they now own the largest martial arts school in the area, as well as, a very successful clothing store. The Chinese Mafia catches up to Jaw-long more than twenty years later and wants him dead. But they would have to go through his family in America to get to him. Then Chinese Mafia discovers Jaw-long is alive and well and come for him in America. While Jaw-long and Frank are away, the Chinese Mafia attacks their martial arts school, killing a family member and seriously injuring three others. Frank’s wife is poisoned while Jaw-long’s wife is kidnapped and taken back to China. The Chinese Mafia has made a huge mistake, as they will soon find out; you don’t mess with their family.

This provocative book is about the proposed ordination of proven leaders of Catholic communities. While most people begin any consideration of this topic by pointing out the current shortage of priest, this concise investigation assumes a different starting point. Roman Catholic Priests are human beings like everyone else, but at the same time they are also quite dissimilar. For example, they do not make their living by the work of their hands. Nor do they raise a family. The crucial question that this book raises is: must all ordained leaders be of the kind? Can the Catholic Church introduce a second kind of priest who is living in a way that is similar to the rest of the community? Such questions are at the heart of this important study.

Feeling alienated from his privileged world and uncomfortable with the "pop" counterculture of the 1960s, a troubled young man, Ron Williams, decides to enlist for the war in Vietnam. But upon arrival in the war-torn country, Williams is randomly assigned to a covert reconnaissance squad attached to S2 (Army intelligence), where he discovers deeply disturbing facts about the war. Was it true that Harry Truman had been kept unaware of the pro-American sentiments of Ho Chi Minh, just as he'd been kept unaware of the atomic bomb? Was this what led Truman (under considerable political pressure from the French) to allow Vietnam to revert back to French rule instead of to Ho Chi Minh? Was it also true that Ho Chi Minh would have broken all ties to communism if only the United States had promised to sponsor him? Was it true that Vietnam's top generals the ones that defeated the Japanese, the French, and now the U.S. had been trained by the OSS, forerunner of the CIA? Was it true that an entire decade of war and the loss of over 50,000 American lives was due to a simple misunderstanding? While his covert S2 duties are extremely hazardous, they do not exempt Williams from further risking his life with regular Army troops in some of the most spectacular battles of the Vietnam War. As he gains more and more access to Army intelligence, another disturbing pattern emerges: the Viet Cong in his province are never caught off guard. They always know when and where the Army will attack and are always ready to counterattack. He soon begins to suspect the unthinkable: there is an American traitor among his commanding officers and that traitor wants him dead. Williams now faces three choices: solve the mystery that will most likely get him killed, die in combat, or be sent home in disgrace. Worse yet, he realizes that all three losing propositions are set against the backdrop of a war that should never have been.
