An unprecedented look into the personal and creative life of David Lynch–the visionary filmmaker, artist and creator of Twin Peaks–through his own words and those of his closest colleagues, friends and family.
In this unique hybrid of biography and memoir that’s as unusual as the man himself, Lynch opens up for the first time about a life lived in pursuit of his incredibly singular vision and the many heartaches and struggles he’s faced to bring his unorthodox projects to fruition–sometimes successful, sometimes not. Lynch’s lyrical, intensely intimate and wholly unfiltered personal reflections riff off of preceding biographical sections, written by close collaborator Kristine McKenna and based on over one hundred new interviews with surprisingly candid ex-wives, family members, actors, agents, musicians, and colleagues in various fields who all have their own take on what happened. This landmark book will offer a one-time, all-access pass into the mind of one of our most press-shy, enigmatic, and utterly original living artists.
