"A novel from the co-creator of the landmark series, The Secret History of Twin Peaks enlarges the world of the original series, placing the unexplained phenomena that unfolded there into a vastly layered, wide-ranging history, beginning with the journals of Lewis and Clark and ending with the shocking events that closed the finale."
The book works best when Frost returns to Twin Peaks and the familiar characters and places that first caught our attention: Agent Dale Cooper, the Log Lady, the Packards, Norma and Big Ed, Audrey Horne, the Great Northern Hotel. The book even contains a copy of the menu for the Double R Diner, home of that damn fine cup of coffee and delicious cherry pie... if you are a fan, dive right in. The water is chilly and dark, and so are the thrills and delights Frost has waiting for you.
Frost’s book is almost everything a hardcore Peaks fan could want. Compiled as a 'found' dossier with notes-within-margin-notes, new photographs, autopsy reports, book excerpts, newspaper clippings, and even a menu for the Double R diner, I really can’t state enough how physically lovely this book is ... As a reviewer, I’m sympathetic, but as a fan I’m bummed we get so very little information on what’s been happening in Twin Peaks since 1991. By the book’s final big reveal—the identity of The Archivist and the name of the present-day special agent examining the dossier—does what it must: leaves readers asking even more questions.
