The extraordinary and highly anticipated memoir from visionary filmmaker David Lynch.

In this memoir, David Lynch 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.

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 two Best Director Academy Awards, for The Elephant Man and Blue Velvet; awarded the Palme d'Or, for Wild at Heart; and established himself as an artist of tremendous range and wit. Twin Peaks mania swept the world when his groundbreaking television series premiered in 1990. A new season of Twin Peaks aired in 2017.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.

`Fascinating insights into the director's process.' * New York Times * This enigmatic yet plainspoken artist has told his story innumerable times, most recently in the documentary David Lynch: The Art Life, but I never tire of hearing of the strange path that took him from an idyllic 1950s Midwestern childhood, to a decaying late '60s Philadelphia, to the heights of Hollywood. * Publishers Weekly, Staff Picks Summer 2018 *
