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 David Lynch. 40 Years of David Lynch is a career retrospective of a film director whose style is so unique they had to make up a word just 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. Leaving behind the photos and video clips of the blog format, Michael takes this opportunity to rewrite and reimagine the experience as a book and finish what he started five years earlier with volumes of additional new material not found anywhere 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 and enlightening experience whether you are familiar with the original blog or not.

40 Years of David Lynch fills four 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 soon after 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.

Volume I: Eraserhead – TwinPeaks
Release Date: April 25th

Volume II: Twin Peaks – InlandEmpire
Release Date: May 16th

Volume III: Twin Peaks 1990-92
Release Date: August 15th

Volume IV: Twin Peaks 2017
Release Date: October 24th

The television landscape would never be the same again after David Lynch released his television masterpiece Twin Peaks (1990-91) and 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 up their game and usher in a more sophisticated era of television that we currently enjoy today.

So while the first two volumes of this new book series have some correlation with the original blog, Volumes III & IV will be comprised almost exclusively of new and original material exploring Twin Peaks as a whole in far greater detail. Volume III will contain analysis of each episode of the original classic series and not just those episodes directed by David Lynch.

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

And beyond his impact on television, David Lynch has also been acknowledged as one of the most important voices in cinema when last year in 2016, the prestigious Sight & Sound magazine announced that David Lynch directed the Best Film of the 21st Century: Mulholland Dr. (2001).

40 Years of David Lynch is the perfect companion for anyone interested exploring this fascinating director’s work in greater detail, and arrives just in time for a whole new chapter of his career to begin. The humble artist continues to mesmerize us 40 years after first arriving on the pop culture scene with his first feature film Eraserhead (1977). So let us expand our horizons and get Lynchian, as we explore the abstract, strange, yet serenely beautiful artistic worlds of David Lynch.

Volume I: Eraserhead – TwinPeaks
