Coffee, Doughnuts & Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks aired in 1990, but its influence continues to linger today. Interest in David Lynch and Mark Frost's genius reignited when the show returned in 2017. If you like things that tread off of the beaten path, I highly recommend this show. Seasons 1, 2 and 3 along with the materials listed below will make a fine way to settle into mid-summer. Add a hot cup of joe and doughnuts and you're all set. And, if you're like Federal Agent Cooper, you'll probably like your coffee "black as midnight on a moonless night." 

Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me is an integral part of understanding this universe. Recapping the events before Laura's murder, viewers will peer into her life as she teeters on the brink of sanity.

The Secret History of Twin Peaks includes reports from the FBI, CIA, other government documents, and all kinds of evidence and artifacts that piece together the elusive town, along with its history, citizens and very nature. Everything in this fantastic book is as authentic and real as it could be. 

Twin Peaks The Final Dossier is the follow-up to the The Secret History, holding all the updated case files concerning the town.

Damn Fine Cherry Pie Why not make each viewing special? Prepare a delicious treat for yourself and others with choices from over 100 recipes inspired by the show. 

Full of Secrets provides a masterful sampling of cutting edge critical theory. Using Twin Peaks as an anchor, these are deep philosophical meditations about the undertones of plot, setting and character.
