About a year ago I discovered Twin Peaks on Netflix, and I am currently enjoying every moment of season 3. I've really come to appreciate the subtleties and nuances of David Lynch's style of storytelling. While I want to dive further into his cinematic canon (which would be a question for a different SE community), I am curious about influences on his work from a literary perspective.

Has David Lynch ever identified specific literary influences -- works and/or writers -- that have shaped the way he tells stories? It doesn't necessarily have to be an influence on Twin Peaks in particular, but that would be a bonus.

  • Those interested in answering this question might find Lynch's book Catching the Big Fish helpful.
