Review

Hats off to Brad Dukes for gathering an incredible plethora of inside knowledge and translating all of that into the true story of Twin Peaks. Trust me, there's an anecdote or fact you didn't know about the show... ON EVERY PAGE. Reflections is the book I didn't know I waited 25 years for to read, and I love it like Cooper loves pie! --welcometotwinpeaks.com

As interest in Twin Peaks hits arguably its highest point since 1990 (when the show first aired), the well-timed release of Brad Dukes' oral history provides fans, new and old, with a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how the magic was created 25 years ago...and perhaps even more fascinatingly, how it dissipated. Dukes himself watched the show as a 9-year-old and is obviously still obsessed with the series a quarter-century down the line, so he brings an enthusiasm and knowledge to the project which informs both the breadth and depth of the book. Interviewing almost everyone involved with the show, from co-creator Mark Frost on down, Dukes weaves a spellbinding tapestry embracing everything from the nitty-gritty of recording technique in composer Angelo Badalamenti's New York studio to the fast-paced Hollywood packaging of the show for nervous executives to the ineffable magic David Lynch evoked with his hardy band of fellow travelers/co-conspirators on location in Seattle.

The book's greatest strength is its ability to structure all of this material as something not only coherent, but narrative: we move from the heady early days of Twin Peaks' breakneck first season and unexpected smash success to the troubled and still contentious drama behind season two, which failed to sustain the show's audience and resulted in the show's cancellation. At times assembling the various anecdotes to coalesce into a firm picture, at others allowing them to contradict one another as various participants recall circumstances in different fashion, Reflections creates just what its title suggests - an alluring yet fleeting examination of the rise and fall of a phenomenon.

Guys, this book is packed with fantastic details, trivia, stories, surprises and information. I basically read the whole thing in one day. If you love twin peaks then you love reading interviews with almost every major player. I wish the book was longer. I actually wanted more.

Twin Peaks is a special part of television history and this book does a tremendous job of getting first hand accounts of many aspects of the show. While it sadly lacks material from David Lynch, just about every other major player in the show provided detailed interview material. Clearly, the author has put a ton of effort into this and it will surely be the definitive book about Twin Peaks, the TV series (there is very little material concerning the follow up movie, "Fire Walk With Me").

I found that reading the book was much like watching the show for me. The first half of the book that covers the genesis of the show through the end of season one was fantastic and totally drew me in. As the book covered later episodes in season two, much of my interest waned. Just like the series finale, this book finished quite strongly.

Twin Peaks is one of my all time favorite TV shows. I can never get enough of it. I am grateful to have this fantastic book to reveal so many secrets of what went into making the show.

Reflections is the perfect companion to the newly-released Twin Peaks' blu-ray set. The book paints an interesting portrait of what it was like to be there at the show's inception, production, height of its popularity and the decline of the second season. But, just as the series finished strong so does Dukes' Relections. The structure is set up as interviews conducted by Dukes over the years. You get a well-rounded opinion of how everything went down based on the varying stories and interesting anecdotes. I didn't expect it to be such a page-turner. The unique format sets this book apart from other fan-written television critiques as it is not the writer's opinion, but rather the candid comments by those directly involved with Twin Peaks. In fact, the writer's voice is pretty minimal serving only to bridge the gap between ideas and chapters rather than trying interfere with the opinions of those who were actually there. I was simply amazed by the scope of how many people Dukes was able to get comments from. Yes, there is no Lynch or Lara Flynn Boyle, but honestly, I didn't miss them. What we get is so much more interesting because it's everyone from Mark Frost to episode-specific directors. Sure, the remarks from the actors are fun, but it's always the producers and the writers who have more interesting insights about the bigger picture. I particularly loved the chapter on the music by Angelo Badalamenti. It's such a huge part of what made the show unique, moody and mysterious, I could have read many chapters on this and still been interested. Clearly the author has a deep appreciation for it as well and it shows. Nevertheless, what we get is really thorough. I am a pretty die-hard Peaks fan and there were some juicy tidbits in here that even I didn't know about. I won't spoil them for you.Read more ›

Brad Dukes has done a great job of compiling an oral history from the Twin Peaks television show including most of the actors, writers directors, crew, agents, network executives ... you name it. The most notable exceptions are those you would expect (David Lynch, Lara Flynn Boyle and Eric Da Re). There are a lot of interesting stories about the creation and production of the episodes, plus several photographs that weren't available before.
