Get lost once again in the twisted world of Twin Peaks with the upcoming Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks.
If you’re a rabid Twin Peaks or David Lynch fan like myself, you’ve probably already hungrily devoured books like The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer or The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes, but chances are you’re looking for something a little meatier. Something grounded in reality. Something you can learn a thing or two from.
Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks should be right up your alley, chock full of pertinent information about David Lynch’s magnum opus. It features over 300 pages of interviews with nearly every single person originally involved with the cult classic series. We’re talking Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Ray Wise, Michael Ontkean, Mark Frost, and more.
Author Brad Dukes from Nashville, Tennessee has crafted a true collection of anecdotes, fun facts, and other iniquities about one of the most perplexing series of all time, from the damn fine cherry pie down to Cooper’s bizarre quirks.
Reflections, An Oral History of Twin Peaks is shipping via Short/Tall Press on or before July 15, 2014, so you’ve got some time to pre-order it right now at the meager price of $12.38.
This type of insider knowledge isn’t so easily gleaned, especially when you consider the sheer amount of legwork required on Dukes’ part to collect all of the statements from the cast and creators. It’s refreshing to see so much love for a series that aired back at the beginning of the ’90s, but a love for Twin Peaks is one that never dies.
If you pick up the book, be sure to report back with your thoughts and findings. In the meantime, I’m going to be geeking out hardcore as the release date approaches. With the impending Twin Peaks Blu-ray that’s about to come out, 2014 is going to end up being one of the best years for the series yet.
