Room to Dream Reviews

  • Kevin

    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. McKenna, who interviewed more than 100 people, writes the straightforward biography chapters offering perspectives from ex-wives, producers, cast and crew members. A chapter by Lynch follows, elaborating on the preceding ...more

  • Kristen

    This book will be a big hit with passionate David Lynch fans and serious film scholars, but for the rest of us, it's not a very compelling read.

    The format is clever, with chapters alternating between traditional, third-person-style biography provided by Kristine McKenna and first-person memoir by Lynch. While this could be a great idea, it fails here, since McKenna's chapters are flat and lacking in insight, and Lynch's chapters are vivid and uninteresting. (A typical gem from Lynch is, "My fou

    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 circumstances, simply because he’s David Lynch. This brings us to Room to Dream, a memoir which combines fairly straightforward oral history prose composed by long time Lynch friend Kristine McKenna with chapter by chapte ...more

    “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 way out of L.A., to the dry lake beds, to see them now. One time we were out there shooting a commercial and at two in the morning we turned off the lights and lay down on the desert floor and just looked up. Trillions of st ...more

  • Daniel

    Absolutely a must read for Lynch fans. Totally absorbing. That said, it’s kind of hard to imagine anyone without a lot of admiration for and knowledge of Lynch loving this. For everyone else, an incredible read.

    Truly an original American voice which, for all kinds of reasons (discussed here in oblique and not so oblique terms) seems harder and harder to come by. Lots of insights but no definitive answers; this is a David Lynch (semi) autobiography after all.

  • Tasha Robinson

    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 previous one that their marriage (or in Isabella Rossellini's case, relationship) was over. It bothered me a bit that he romanticizes this process as "Then I fell in love with so-and-so, it was amazing," but on th ...more

    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 written by Kristine McKenna and then are followed by memoir portions written by David Lynch himself.

    This is a beautiful package of knowledge.

    Ever since the late 80's, I kind of binged on David Lynch and his movies. He was such an interesting director creating movies that weren't really for the masses. They were for him and for his art. This book is geared to those fans. To the people that want to know more about Lynch and his process and his personal history and how it relates to his films and art.

    The story is told almost in two POVS. "This is a story of dualities." The first part of each chapter comes from Kristine McKenna. She has
