An unprecedented look into the personal and creative life of the visionary auteur David Lynch, through his own words and those of his closest colleagues, friends, and family — adapted by David Lynch from the print book especially for this audio program In this unique hybrid of biography and memoir, David Lynch opens up for the first time about a life lived in pursuit of his singular vision, and the many heartaches and struggles he's faced to bring his unorthodox projects to fruition. Lynch's lyrical, intimate, and unfiltered personal reflections riff off biographical sections written by close collaborator Kristine McKenna and based on more than one hundred new interviews with surprisingly candid ex-wives, family members, actors, agents, musicians, and colleagues in various fields who all have their own takes on what happened. Room to Dream is a landmark book that offers a onetime all-access pass into the life and mind of one of our most enigmatic and utterly original living artists. With insights into . . .

Professional reviews

"It's no surprise that avante-garde filmmaker David Lynch's memoir/biography is far from ordinary. Lynch and his close friend, journalist Kristine McKenna, have compiled a multifaceted look at this singular talent. Lynch delivers his point of view in a slightly scratchy tenor. He sounds honest, amused, and friendly as he recounts moments from his childhood and later life that profoundly influenced his filmmaking. From his observations, we hear the young visionary emerging. McKenna's chapters offer a more traditional biography filled with facts. Her intelligent reading extracts rich details from candid interviews with Lynch's friends, family, ex-wives, ex-lovers, along with the agents, actors, and others who worked with him. Delving into his experiences with such films as ERASERHEAD, DUNE, BLUE VELVET, and more, Lynch's audiobook will surprise and sometimes confound but always fascinate.
