David Bushman and Arthur Smith, authors of Twin Peaks FAQ: All That's Left to Know About a Place Both Wonderful and Strange spoke with Mr. Media, a podcast hosted by Bob Andelman. They spoke about why they wrote this book and the appeal that Twin Peaks still has to this day.
About the BookTwin Peaks FAQ will guide longtime fans and the newly initiated through the origins of the series, take them behind the scenes during its production, and transport readers deep into the rich mythology that made Twin Peaks a cultural phenomenon. The book features detailed episode guides, character breakdowns, and explorations of the show's distinctive music, fashion, and locations. With a sometimes snarky, always thoughtful (but never dry or academic) analysis of Twin Peaks' myriad oddities, mysteries, references, and delicious insanity, Twin Peaks FAQ is a comprehensive, immersive, and irresistible reference for experts and newbies alike.
