The 5 best Twin Peaks books
Comingsoon.net is determined to parse through the dense forest that is Twin Peaks. Check out our favorite books on the series in the gallery below!
In April of 1990, David Lynch and Mark Frost hanged television history with their ABC mystery-drama Twin Peaks. Up until this time, television and film were mutually exclusive—notable filmmakers didn’t make TV, and showrunners didn’t make notable films. Once David Lynch—whose films like Eraserhead and Blue Velvet had already made quite an impact on moviegoers across the world—made a deal with ABC to bring some of his genius to the small screen, the medium changed forever.
Naturally, given Lynch’s unique approach to storytelling, the show can be a lot to unpack at times. This is especially true of the show’s prequel film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me from 1992 and the show’s 18-part revival on Showtime from 2017. Luckily, a handful of authors have taken it upon themselves to dissect, analyze, and elaborate on all aspects of the show—from its soundtrack to its previously-unseen history and even the events that follow Part 18’s immensely satisfying conclusion.
