Having David Patrick Kelly instead of David Lynch read an interoffice memo from Deputy Director Gordon Cole to FBI Special Agent TP, may indicate that other voice actors aren’t necessarily narrating lines for their original Twin Peaks characters either. In addition to DPK, the cast of the audiobook includes Kyle MacLachlan, Mark Frost, Russ Tamblyn, Michael Horse, Chris Mulkey, Amy Shiels, James Morrison, Robert Knepper,  Annie Wersching, Len Cariou, Mat Hostetler, Arthur Bishop and Ari Fliakos. Although yet unconfirmed, it’s unlikely the audiobook’s soundtrack was composed by Angelo Badalamenti.

Both the U.S. hardcover and the audio version will be out October 18, 2016. An 8-disc CD version is available for pre-order on Amazon and Book Depository (worldwide). A digital-only unabridged Audible version can be pre-ordered here, or from iTunes.

Special deal: if you sign up for a free 30-day trial, you can listen to the audiobook for free!
