Twin Peaks Overview

The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, an epistolary piece of tie-in fiction, was published during the hiatus between the first and second seasons of the incredibly popular network television series Twin Peaks. The author of the novel, Jennifer Lynch, wrote the book when she was 22 years old at the request of her father, David Lynch, the creator of the Twin Peaks television series. Fabricated to appear like the real diary of Laura Palmer, a 17-year-old girl whose body was discovered in the first episode of the television series, the novel is a supernatural and psychological thriller that depicts themes of deception, the effects of sexual abuse, and appearance versus reality.
