Staff Reviews

The original Twin Peaks series leans so strongly on its purgatorial cinematography to tell of a murder in a sleepy Washington town that it's difficult to envision a shift to the novel form. Instead, series co-creator Mark Frost places a new dossier in your hands, leaving much of the sleuthing up to you. An interwoven set of letters, diaries, and photos split the reader between the work of the mysterious Archivist and the footnotes of an FBI agent. For fans anticipating the Showtime reboot and non-fans alike, The Secret History of Twin Peaks pulses with a chaos akin to Mark Z. Danielewski's eerily labyrinthine House of Leaves.

— From Tony


From the co-creator of the landmark series, the story millions of fans have been waiting to get their hands on for 25 long years.

The Secret History of Twin Peaks enlarges the world of the original series, placing the unexplained phenomena that unfolded there into a vastly layered, wide-ranging history, beginning with the journals of Lewis and Clark and ending with the shocking events that closed the finale. The perfect way to get in the mood for the upcoming Showtime series.
