ROOM TO DREAM by David Lynch and Kristine McKenna

I may have to write a book about Neglecting One’s Blog.

ROOM TO DREAM is a unique look at the life of David Lynch, particularly in the way the book is organized.

Following Lynch’s life chronologically, writer Kristine McKenna interviews friends, family and co-workers about Lynch.

Then, each chapter is followed by Lynch himself commenting on the same period/events. It makes for some interesting bits (Mel Brooks insists Anthony Hopkins didn’t try to get Lynch fired from THE ELEPHANT MAN; Lynch insists he did), but more importantly it gives a fuller view of Lynch than one could get from either a straight bio or a memoir.

Strongly Recommended for Lynch fans.
