Book Description Wayne State University Press, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Full of Secrets is the complete source book on Twin Peaks , the first foray into television for prominent film director David Lynch. Addressing a wide variety of topics, including the series cult status, its obsession with doubling, and its silencing of women, this diverse group of essays analyses the series from feminist, deconstructionist and semiotic perspectives. The show, which earned 14 Emmy nominations in its first season, was originally tauted as capable of changing television forever. Due to its unique visual style, its resistance of stereotype - it was a hybrid of FBI drama, murder mystery, soap opera, comedy and commercial - and its controversial subject matter centred around father-daughter incest, Twin Peaks was, for a time, the most talked about show on television. Because it was at once subversive and innovative, many found it hard to believe that this moody, bizarre, intertextual, and self-referential series found an audience on network television. To help explain the phenomenon, Full of Secrets looks at Twin Peaks from a critical and interpretive standpoint. In doing so, the book not only acts as an essential guide to the series, but it also raises questions about the very nature and function of television in the 1990s. Containing virtually everything necessary for an in-depth examination of the series importance and meaning, this book also features a director and writer list, a cast list, a Twin Peaks calendar, a complete scene breakdown for the entire series, and a comprehensive bibliography.
