THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

David Lynch - co-creator of Twin Peaks and writer and director of groundbreaking films such as Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive - opens up about a lifetime of extraordinary creativity, the friendships he has made along the way and the struggles he has faced - sometimes successful, sometimes not - to bring his projects to fruition.

Part-memoir, part-biography, Room to Dream interweaves Lynch's own reflections on his life with the story of those times, as told by Kristine McKenna, drawing from extensive and explosive interviews with ninety of Lynch's friends, family members, actors, agents, musicians and collaborators. Lynch responds to each recollection and reveals the inner story of the life behind the art.

About the author

David Lynch advanced to the front ranks of international cinema in 1977 with the release of his first film, the startlingly original Eraserhead. Since then, Lynch has been nominated for three Best Director Academy Awards for The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, was awarded the Palme d'Or for Wild at Heart and has established himself as an artist of tremendous range and wit. In 1990, Twin Peaks mania swept the world when his groundbreaking television series premiered on ABC. A new season of Twin Peaks aired in May 2017 to widespread acclaim.
Kristine McKenna is a widely published critic and journalist who wrote for the Los Angeles Times from 1977 to 1998. Her profiles and criticism have appeared in Artforum, The New York Times, Artnews, Vanity Fair, The Washington Post and Rolling Stone Magazine.
