Two years after its surprise announcement, Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks novel is finally getting a multi-format release next week. For those curious about the Audible/CD-version of The Secret History of Twin Peaks, here’s a preview of the first four pages of the book which equals the first five out of a total 573 minutes (9 hours and 33 minutes) of audio.
“The Secret History of Twin Peaks” Audio Preview
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!
The German audio version of the book will be released November 11th as a double CD and can be pre-ordered via Amazon.
