This is surely one of the most intelligent, exciting, and wide-ranging looks at the postmodern mediascope yet written.

— Allison Graham

Full of Secrets contains virtually everything you need to know about Twin Peaks. This fascinating collection of essays considers David Lynch’s politics, the enigmatic musical score, and the show’s cult status, treatment of family violence, obsession with doubling, and silencing of women. Also included are a director and writer list, a cast list, a Twin Peaks calendar, a complete scene breakdown for the entire series, and a comprehensive bibliography.

David Lavery (Ph.D. in English, University of Florida) is professor and chair of the Department of English at Middle Tennessee State University. He is the author of numerous essays and of Late for the Sky: The Mentality of the Space Age (Southern Illinois University Press).

Contributors Include:
Christy Desmet, Marc Dolan, Diana Hume George, Angela Hague, Henry Jenkins, Kathryn Kalinak, Alice Kuzniar, David Lavery, Martha Nochimson, Jimmie L. Reeves, Jonathan Rosenbaum, Diane Stevenson, J. P. Telotte, James M. Welsh

Anyone who thinks this book is meant only for TV cultists is badly mistaken. This is surely one of the most intelligent, exciting, and wide-ranging looks at the postmodern mediascope yet written. Essential reading for anyone interested in the aesthetics, history, and politics of American popular culture at the close of the twentieth century.
