This book also ties in pertinent Nez Pierce Native American lore dating back to the Manifest Destony days, not to mention some good old-fashioned high weirdness like the Freemasons, UFOs, Jack Parsons and the Grassy Knoll. 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

Quimby’s Bookstore is Coming to New York!


Since 1991 Quimby’s Bookstore has been selling zines and alternative literature in Chicago and now the founder, Steven Svymbersky is going to open a second store in New York! (No worries, the Chicago store isn’t going anywhere!) The first step is to find the right location. We are looking for a space with somewhere between 600-900 sq. ft. not too distant from a train stop. All neighborhoods are up for consideration. If you have any information or suggestions please contact Steven at ssvymberksy(at)gmail(dot)com.

Once a location is found it won’t take long for the store to open and then all the zines and small press publications will be accepted on consignment and events can be scheduled. Looking forward to promoting alternative and underground Lit and Art in New York city very soon!
