40 YEARS OF DAVID LYNCH

Pre-Order on Amazon Today!
Join filmmaker and author Michael Adam Warren on a journey of discovery through the cinematic dreamscapes of director David Lynch the man who created some of the most strangely beautiful films in the world, including Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Dune, Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks, Lost Highway, The Straight Story, Mulholland Dr., Inland Empire, and many more. 40 Years of David Lynch is a career retrospective of a film director whose style is so unique they had to coin a new word even to describe it: “Lynchian.”

Michael previously wrote the popular blog 35 Years of David Lynch and edited the acclaimed fan cut Dune: The Complete Saga. Michael takes this opportunity to write and imagine the experience of discovery and contemplation of David Lynch’s films as a book and finish what he started five years earlier in his blog, but now with volumes of additional new material found nowhere else.

Michael adds new layers of literary content exclusive to 40 Years of David Lynch, including new insights and analysis as he sits down with the reader to re-watch David Lynch’s filmography all over again with fresh eyes five years later. Michael engages readers on a whole new level of understanding in this book, creating a wholly unique, humorous, and entertaining experience for all readers.

Once complete, 40 Years of David Lynch will fill five volumes on paperback, which are designed to rest together attractively side by side as a set on your bookshelf. It will also be released on eBook and eventually on Audiobook, narrated by the author. This multi-volume book series stands on its own to encourage new and old generations of viewers to take a closer look at a body of artistic work that asks us to think a little deeper and to dream a little bigger.

David Lynch has been acknowledged as one of the most important voices in cinema when last year in 2016, the prestigious Sight & Sound magazine announced that the David Lynch directed Mulholland Dr. (2001) is the “Best film of the 21st century!”

And the television landscape would never be the same again after David Lynch released his TV masterpiece Twin Peaks (1990-91) and later its prequel film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992). The series resonated with viewers across the world and had a profound impact on the next generation of TV showrunners—many of whom were inspired to usher in a more sophisticated era of television that we currently enjoy today.

Volumes I, II, and III will cover all motion pictures written and/or directed by David Lynch, while Volumes IV and V will be comprised of a much deeper analysis of Twin Peaks, particularly in context of the new revival of the program 25 years later.

Volume IV will fully justify the title 40 Years of David Lynch as Michael examines in detail all 18 parts of the new Twin Peaks, which David Lynch co-wrote and personally directed. They are slated to begin airing soon on the premium cable network Showtime, starting May 21 and ending September 03, 2017.

40 Years of David Lynch is the perfect companion for anyone interested exploring this fascinating director’s body of work over the course of his career, and arrives just in time for a whole new chapter of storytelling to begin.

This singular artist continues to mesmerize us forty years after first arriving on the pop culture scene with his first feature film Eraserhead (1977). And he has not yet failed to engage our imaginations ever since. So expand your horizons and get Lynchian, as we explore the abstract, strange, yet serenely beautiful artistic worlds of David Lynch.
