I don’t think that’s it. Lynch readily talked about Mark whenever he discussed the script phase, and I think in one interview he said TP:TR was 60% DKL and 40% Mark (I believe), which struck me as generous given that Lynch was the director in addition to being half the writing team.
But in my opinion, the language that's used to describe the relationship between himself and David seems strained. There are a few moments of candidness that surprised me.
Sounds very interesting. can't wait to read it.
If I had to guess tho, I've been thinking for a while that Lynch wants Twin Peaks for himself. Frost seemed to be unwanted during season 3. Just a guess tho. Sadly I don't think Lynch likes to share credit or creative. I wonder if this is the hold up on future seasons.
I wonder if Frost was upset at the quotes in Room to Dream from Tony Krantz, where he says the show broke down because Mark was jealous of David. It struck me as insulting and unprofessional that Lynch/McKenna used that quote, especially since Lynch says elsewhere that he doesn’t trust Krantz and would never work with him again. By making that part of the narrative, it comes across as Lynch endorsing the sentiment. I know Lynch did not want to interfere with McKenna’s chapters because he wanted a candid, sometimes unflattering profile, but he really should have nixed that portion. I can’t imagine being Mark and reading that about myself in a book partially written by and endorsed by a colleague/friend. I’d be furious.
