Also provides some much needed background for specific questions on the show: how exactly did Hank fall out of favor with the Bookhouse Boys? What happened to the Log Lady when she was a kid that made her so weird? Awesome ephemera reproduction to move the narrative along that any TP fan will go ga-ga for: an RR Diner menu! The cover of a Terence McKenna-like book by Dr. Jacoby! An Autopsy Report of Josie Packard! Also, a surprisingly good piece of writing in the form of the doctor’s notes diagnosing Nadine’s health issues which showcases Mark Frost’s abilities to take the poetic Lynchian images and make sense of them (he was the one who pretty much filled in the gaps for David Lynch’s weirdness and made it, well make sense). A damn fine book. -LM
