"David Lynch erupted onto the cinema landscape with Eraserhead, establishing himself as one of the most original, imaginative, and truly personal directors at work in contemporary film. Over the course of a career that includes such films as The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Lost Highway and the seminal TV series Twin Peaks, Lynch has remained true to an artistic vision of innocence lost or adrift in the direst states of darkness and confusion. In this definitive career-length interview book, Lynch speaks openly about the stunning range of his creative work."--Jacket
