Mark Frost, cocreator of both the original Twin Peaks and The Return, is often lost in the shadow of cocreator David Lynch in the eyes of critics and scholars. In fact, Frost played at least as crucial a role in developing the narrative, mythology, and aesthetic of those groundbreaking, critically revered series. Conversations with Mark Frost deconstructs that legendary partnership, while at the same time exploring Frost’s values, influences, thematic preoccupations, and approach to creating art–for the screen, the stage, and the printed page–as well as his thoughts on a wide variety of political, artistic, and social topics. Included, for example, are Frost’s recollections of a bizarre encounter with Warren Beatty and Donald Trump in the mideighties, his days as a production assistant on Mister Roger’s Neighborhood, his experiences working alongside the likes of David Milch in the legendarily competitive writers’ room at Hill Street Blues, conversations about alien life and time travel with iconic film director Steven Spielberg, and much, much more.
