"Proposes several lenses through which to view Lynch and his work: through the age-old mysteries of the uncanny and the sublime, through the creative energies of surrealism and postmodernism, through ideas of America and theories of good and evil. Lynch himself often warns against overinterpretation. And accordingly, this is not a book that seeks to decode his art or annotate his life--to dispel the strangeness of the Lynchian--so much as one that offers complementary ways of seeing and understanding one of the most distinctive bodies of work in modern cinema"--Dust jacket flap.

A concise, perceptive, and readable overview of Lynch that engages in some of the academic discourse on the subject without getting pretentious.

Read " Lynch on Lynch " as this book culls a lot from that one. Also, the author makes quite a few mistakes.
