Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lynch comes across as an amiable, chatty fellow who wears his brilliance lightly…The book abounds in great stories and terrific movie trivia that will sate Lynch fans for years to come.” Kirkus Reviews
A memorable portrait of one of cinema’s great auteurs . . . provides a remarkable insight into [David] Lynch’s intense commitment to the ‘art life.’ The Guardian
Insightful . . . an impressively industrious and comprehensive account of Lynch’s career. The New York Times Book Review
This is the best book by and about a movie director since Elia Kazan’s A Life (1988) and Michael Powell’s A Life in Movies (1986). But Room to Dream is more enchanting or appealing than those classics. . . . What makes this book endearing is its chatty, calm account of how genius in America can be a matter-of-fact defiance of reality that won’t alarm your dog or save mankind. It’s the only way to dream in so disturbed a country. San Francisco Chronicle
“McKenna turns in an impressively industrious and comprehensive account of Lynch’s career…Room to Dream is an absorbing glimpse into a compulsively creative soul whose credo might as well be, as he writes at one point: ‘I love the logic of dreams. Anything can happen, and it makes sense.’” New York Times Book Review
“The avant-garde director of The Elephant Man and Blue Velvet and cocreator of Twin Peaks remembers a life as surreal as his movies in this exuberant biography/memoir… Lynch is a great raconteur, and at the book’s heart are his anecdotes…The result is an entertainingly offbeat show-biz saga and a fine evocation of Lynch’s unique voice and sensibility.” Publishers Weekly
