David Lynch has embarked on his autobiography to destroy all the “bullshit out there about me”.

The director, who’s currently working on a Twin Peaks reboot, has teamed up with journalist Kristine McKenna for the book, titled Life And Work.

“There’s a lot of bullshit out there about me, in books and all over the Internet,” Lynch said in a statement from publisher Canongate. “I want to get all the right information in one place, so if someone wants to know something, they can find it here. And I wouldn’t do it with anyone other than Kristine; she and I go way back, and she gets it right.”

Rather than a straightforward autobiography, the book will be based on interviews with 90 of the director’s friends, family and collaborators, with Lynch “riffing on his own life”.
