You're excited for the new season of Twin Peaks, right? You're only human.
The cult show returns next year, but ahead of that its co-creator Mark Frost has a novel coming out in October, The Secret History Of Twin Peaks, which offers a "vastly layered, wide-ranging history that deepens the mysteries of that iconic town in ways that not only enrich the original series but readies fans for the upcoming Showtime episodes".
Just to get you in the mood for release of the book (and fired up even more for the show), here's a tantalising trailer and synopsis:
Twenty-five years [after Dale Cooper’s investigation of the murder of Laura Palmer,] the FBI gets a hold of a box it won’t divulge the provenance of. In the box, a huge dossier…
A female FBI agent is tasked to analyse all the documents inside, and everything related to the strange town of Twin Peaks. She also has to determine the identity of the person who compiled the dossier. Along the way, she discovers secrets about the lives of the town’s residents, but also investigative reports from Dale Cooper who has since vanished, newspaper clippings, an autopsy report, and other classified information.
What happened since the death of the young woman? And why did an anonymous 'archivist' compile such a thorough dossier on Twin Peaks and its origins?
