"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. 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."--Dust jacket.

Finally finished this book after months of sporadic reading. Luckily, this book lends itself to that type of reading. Holy cow, entering the world if David Lynch is such a pleasure. I've been a casual fan of his movies and Twin Peaks for decades but this book was a revelation about his life. The back and forth of biography (written superbly by Kristin McKenna) is a unique and effective style. Highly recommended to anyone with a passing interest in David Lynch.

Good book- it alternates between friends and family telling stories about David Lynch, and then switched to Lynch's own point of view. Some interesting yarns .
