Summary

In this memoir, David Lynch - cocreator of Twin Peaks and writer and director of groundbreaking films like 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 90 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.

Essential Listening

The format is unique. The biography part and the recollections by David Lynch himself. Funny, moving and a heap of insight into Lynchs life, His breadth of work is too vast to try and encapsulate in a single volume, It conveys more about the mood and approach of Lynch who despite being a master of dark portrayals of strange other dimensions as a person is a very uplifting and inspiring guy to work with. If you're a Lynch fan you'll dig it. If you're looking for an introduction or more background check out this audio book.

The scales fell from my eyes

I have to say that I never cared much for David Lynch but this book has turned me into a fan. It is very interestingly structured with alternating chapters, the first straight from the biography, the second is Lynch giving his take on what you have just read. This gives the audio version the edge because Lynch himself narrates his chapters, bringing them to life in an extraordinary way. Love David Lynch or hate him, I am willing to bet that after reading this book you will come out respecting him as a major and extremely important artist.

Stories by Uncle Lynch

Lynch is a great story teller and often hilarious to listen to. The dual narration between McKenna and Lynch made it a very pleasant listen.

All in all a great summary of all of Lynch's work.
