Return to Twin Peaks offers new critical considerations and approaches to the Twin Peaks series, as well as reflections on its significance and legacy. With texts that analyze the ways in which readers and viewers endow texts with meaning in light of historically situated and culturally shared emphases and interpretive strategies, this volume showcases the ways in which new theoretical paradigms can reinvigorate and enrich understanding of what Twin Peaks was and what it has become since it went off the air in 1991.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a superb collection of essays on Twin Peaks. Editors Weinstock and Spooner have assembled an array of top-notch scholars, who address the series from a wide range of critical perspectives - from ecocriticism to psychoanalysis to 'thing theory' to fan studies. The chapters play off one another brilliantly, offering a fitting collective tribute to David Lynch's mesmerizing TV masterpiece on the occasion of its twenty-fifth anniversary." - Rob Latham, editor of The Oxford Handbook of Science Fiction

"A quarter-century since its first broadcast, Twin Peaks remains an enigma. But now Weinstock and Spooner have brought together the world's experts on the series, and their discussions of the acting, matter, props, style, psychology, and cultural resonance of Twin Peaks finally lift the veil on the mythical scope of David Lynch and Mark Frost's groundbreaking creation, its legacy and its future. Read this book before you watch the re-boot!" - Ernest Mathijs, Centre for Cinema Studies, University of British Columbia, Canada

"With Twin Peaks set for a much awaited return to the screens, this collection provides a much needed set of fresh perspectives on the ground-breaking show, featuring textual, industrial, theoretical, and reception-based analyses that shed new light on a cult classic. Highly recommended for both students and researchers, this is an invaluable guide to further understanding the intricacies and enigmas of Lynch and Frost's creation." -

Jamie Sexton, Senior Lecturer, Film and Television Studies, Northumbria University, UK
