For the 10th anniversary of David Lynch's bestselling reflection on meditation and creativity, this new edition features interviews with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

When it first appeared in 2006, David Lynch’s Catching the Big Fish was celebrated for being “as close as Lynch will ever come to an interior shot of his famously weird mind” (Rocky Mountain News) Now for the bestseller’s 10th anniversary, Lynch dives deeper into the creative process and the benefits of Transcendental Meditation with the addition of his exclusive q-and-a interviews with Paul McCartneyand Ringo Starr.

The musicians open up to Lynch about their artistry, history, and the benefits they have experienced, artistically and personally, from their decades-long practice of Transcendental Meditation -- a technique that they and their fellow Beatles helped popularize in the 1960s.

Catching the Big Fish is a revelation for all want to understand Lynch’s personal vision. And it is equally compelling for any who wonder how they can nurture their own creativity.

Reviews

“The director explores every aspect of his work in film, music, photography, and other aesthetic pursuits, including behind-the-scenes stories about Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive and revelations on his thirty-five years of Transcendental Mediation. Read it because: This is about as close as Lynch will ever come to an interior shot of his famously weird mind.”
Kelly Lemieux, Rocky Mountain News
 
“The book, an unexpected delight, serves as a sort of skeleton key to the rest: In it he muses on the relationship between Transcendental Meditation and his work with appealingly nondidactic and non–New Age-y clarity, and in so doing opens the door—a crack, at least—to the heretofore impenetrable mysteries of his imagination.”
 —Katie Bolick, The Boston Globe

“The quirky helmer known for Boy Scout demeanor and twisted tales shares his creative vision in a surprisingly gentle tome informed by the underlying teachings of Transcendental Meditation. But don’t worry: David Lynch, one-time creator of “The Angriest Dog in the World” comic, keeps the proselytizing to a minimum. He addresses topics ranging from working with wood (for it) to director’s commentaries (against) in deceptively simple, yet ultimately affirming, chapters. There’s much for fans and aspiring filmmakers to enjoy.”
