    In depth analysis of David Lynch and his creative processes. Each section is composed of two parts, one a biography, the other, a memoir illuminating the former. I've always been curious as to why someone who hit it out of the park with Eraserhead and Elephant Man was such a poor choic...

    For people who love to read how artist, actors, and writer's grew, struggled, fought heaven and hell to be as famous as they have become, this book is for them. David Lynch has been a terrific writer and famous for his share of the TV Show Twin Peaks. I won this in a goodreads giveaway...

    ?Room to Dream? by David Lynch and Kristine McKenna is structured as a conversation about his life with the reader. This book is a storyteller at his best, recalling the stories of his life, the events that made him the complex person that he is. Readers want to know every detail. ...

    Room to Dream by David Lynch is a big book - almost 500 pages, and thoroughly worth it! What a ride and what a story, David Lynch is as creative in the telling of himself as he is in creativing amazing scripts. Two things I loved besides the story is one, chapter titles listed - I did ...

    David Lynch is friend to everyone he ever meets. Even the people who he has cut out of his life, sometimes ruthlessly, still speak fondly of him. He has an energy that people who he works with latch on to. He?s the sort of man you?d probably agree to work with regardless of the cir...

    3.5 leaning towards 4 maybe? If you're expecting to find out how the baby was made in Eraserhead or the nature of the rift between him and Michael J. Anderson, you should look elsewhere. "This book is a chronicle of things that happened," the authors explain in the introduction, ...

    Reviewed this one here for NPR Books. But here's the short version: I learned a lot about David Lynch's personal history from this book, and especially about his habit of ending long-term relationships by taking up with a new woman behind the old one's back, then eventually telling the...

    Filmmaker David Lynch notoriously eludes talking about his work, so a nearly 600-page memoir is quite a surprise. In an effort to create a definitive biography, Lynch and coauthor Kristine McKenna have produced ROOM TO DREAM , a tantalizing hybrid of biography and autobiography. McKenn...

    Lightweight but fun account of the making of David Lynch. Feels like the text to a nonexistent self-made Lynch coffee table book. ...

    Room to Dream by David Lynch is a big book - almost 500 pages, and thoroughly worth it! What a ride and what a story, David Lynch is as creative in the telling of himself as he is in creativing amazing scripts. Two things I loved besides the story is one, chapter titles listed - I did ...

    Wow what a read this is. I was completely enthralled and entranced. Being a big fan of David Lynch's work I was very excited to read this new biography/memoir hybrid. The design of the book works really well and everything flows naturally. The biography portions were lovingly writt...

    David Lynch is friend to everyone he ever meets. Even the people who he has cut out of his life, sometimes ruthlessly, still speak fondly of him. He has an energy that people who he works with latch on to. He?s the sort of man you?d probably agree to work with regardless of the cir...

    The inscrutable auteur David Lynch has delivered a number of memorable films that enthrall and confuse viewers. In Room to Dream we get to peek behind the camera to see what drives the visionary director and artist. In this autobiographical work that's a collaboration between Lync...

    ?Most people?s lives are filled with mystery, but things move super fast nowadays and there?s not much time to sit and daydream and notice the mystery. There are fewer and fewer places in the world now where you can see the stars in the night sky, and you?ve got to go a long wa...

    "Room to Dream" is a biography of famed filmmaker and artist David Lynch, written by both Lynch and biographer Kristine McKenna. For any fan of Lynch's work, this is an absolute must-read, and I would strongly encourage consuming this in audio format. Chapters were written, and are rea...

    What do I get from David Lynch? What do I learn? Things that move me the most. Integrity. Honesty. Warmth. Compassion. Love. Everything could be pitch black, just hold on. Hold on to yourself. It isn't about money or success, its about doing what you love, no matter what. This is what ...

    This book is like spending an afternoon with an old relative and listening to his stories, the same stories he's already told you a million times. You're so familiar with these anecdotes you know all the pauses, all the analogies and punchlines your old relative has perfected over the ...

    It's a hagiography, but surely you need no convincing. Despite the often gushing biography narrative, there are some doozy anecdotes. Marlon Brando drives round hungry but there's only a tomato and a banana in the fridge: not to worry, Marlon tucks in. (Bit of salt on the tomato, sorte...

    Great insights into a truly creative mind. Only wish it was longer. ...

    In the audiobook version, both writers, David Lynch and Kristine McKenna, read their own sections. Lynch's readings feel like extemporaneous story-telling. McKenna's sections overlap, perspectives from Lynch's friends and colleagues. Lynch's stories are the more compelling, of course, ...

    5 stars is about 999,995 too few to express my admiration for this book. So wonderful and beautiful. I'd recommend listening to the audiobook while cross referencing with the physical book. ...

    To say David Lynch's movies are quirky and dark is an understatement. So I was surprised at how normal he seems in this book. He had a normal, church-going childhood but with parents who encouraged all their children to follow their dreams. David is the oldest child in the family and w...

    Reviewed this one here for NPR Books. But here's the short version: I learned a lot about David Lynch's personal history from this book, and especially about his habit of ending long-term relationships by taking up with a new woman behind the old one's back, then eventually telling the...

    Lightweight but fun account of the making of David Lynch. Feels like the text to a nonexistent self-made Lynch coffee table book. ...

    Room to Dream by David Lynch is a big book - almost 500 pages, and thoroughly worth it! What a ride and what a story, David Lynch is as creative in the telling of himself as he is in creativing amazing scripts. Two things I loved besides the story is one, chapter titles listed - I did ...

    ?Most people?s lives are filled with mystery, but things move super fast nowadays and there?s not much time to sit and daydream and notice the mystery. There are fewer and fewer places in the world now where you can see the stars in the night sky, and you?ve got to go a long wa...
