Back in 1990, Mark Frost was re­spon­si­ble for co-cre­at­ing one of TV’s weird­est and most won­der­ful pro­grammes. Along with David Lynch, his Twin Peaks not only re­de­fined the episodic for­mat of tele­vi­sion, but earned a cult fol­low­ing so ar­dent, it’s no sur­prise the show’s mak­ing a come­back in 2017, over two decades af­ter it was un­cer­e­mo­ni­ously can­celled by a net­work that didn’t un­der­stand what it had.

Now, just ahead of the show’s lon­gawaited third sea­son – com­ing to Sky At­lantic in 2017 – Frost has writ­ten a new book, The Se­cret His­tory Of Twin Peaks. He’s tak­ing it on tour, and on the Bath leg he’ll be in­ter­viewed by SFX, at a spe­cial event with Top­ping & Com­pany Book­sell­ers in the city’s Christ Church: Mark Frost Un­cov­ers The Se­cret His­tory Of Twin Peaks.

Telling “the story mil­lions of fans have been wait­ing to read for 25 long years”, Frost’s book rein­tro­duces us to the likes of FBI Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLach­lan) and the towns­peo­ple of the tit­u­lar lo­ca­tion, and it looks like the per­fect primer for the show’s re­turn next year. Ex­pect loads of back­ground on the book from Frost, who’ll no doubt be keep­ing sch­tum about the se­crets of sea­son three, but should have loads of in­sight into the cult phe­nom­e­non.

If you nab an Early Bird ticket, you’ll get £10 off your own copy of The Se­cret His­tory Of Twin Peaks, or buy a Book With Voucher ticket (for £19.99) to re­deem a copy of the book along with a ticket to the event. Maybe it’s time to start stock­pil­ing cherry pie and steam­ing cups of Joe to get you in the right frame of mind...

Al­ways a checked shirt!
