Twin Peaks FAQ: All That’s Left to Know About a Place Both Wonderful and Strange (FAQ Series)
It’s twenty-five years later and we’re still talking about Twin Peaks, one of the most mind-bending, entrancing shows in the history of television. And over the course of that quarter-century of fandom, the show has only grown more mysterious, more fascinating, and more frustrating with every passing year.
Twin Peaks FAQ is the perfect gateway drug for newcomers to the classic series, offering an episode guide, a complete timeline of events from the show, and a rundown of the many many questions and few answers we have from twenty-nine episodes and one film. But devoted fans of the show will also find plenty to unpack in this all-encompassing tome; Bushman and Smith chronicle the show’s birth, behind-the-scenes development, and then dive deep into the mythology with character studies, examinations of the show’s numerous examples of symbolism, and some brave attempts to unravel the labyrinthine mysteries of Killer Bob, the Black Lodge, the Red Room, and more.
It’s a wonderfully unique way to revisit the show or be introduced to it, as the case may be. And although Laura Palmer’s many secrets are contained within, David Lynch’s remain ever elusive.
