"A wonderful account of Twin Peaks and its place in the history of television." -- Angelo Badalamenti, composer (Twin Peaks, Fire Walk with Me, Lost Highway, Mulholland Dr) "For anyone interested in Twin Peaks, the history of television, and how a band of artists came to the Pacific Northwest in the fall of 1989 and changed that history, Andreas Halskovs new book, TV Peaks: Twin Peaks and Modern Television Drama, will be a must-read." -- Wendy Robie, actor (Nadine Hurley in Twin Peaks) "Once upon a time, television was an insular, geographically-bound medium. Then, as TV increased exponentially in quality, many of its greatest series jumped borders and became international phenomena. David Lynch and Mark Frosts Twin Peaks was one of the first to obsess the world. Now Denmarks Andreas Halskov has turned his fascination with Lynch and Twin Peaks into an extraordinary book, one that not only sets the scene for the cultural and industry context that produced Peaks but the endless intricacies of the series itself. With Peaks now likely to return to TV after a twenty five year hiatus, Halskovs sustained visit to our favorite TV town will yield dividends for old and new viewers all over the world for many years to come." -- David Lavery, editor of Full of Secrets: Critical Approaches to Twin Peaks (1995) & co-editor of Twin Peaks in the Rearview Mirror (2012) "Andreas Halskov has written a thoughtfully analytic look at how the seminal television series, Twin Peaks, contributed to the paradigm shift in televised storytelling. He presents a well-supported argument for the shows game-changing position, which led to future breakthrough shows. A must read for fans and students of the medium."- Paul Trejo, editor (Twin Peaks & Black Sails)
