Punk and Laura Palmer

I began working with Nathan Huffstutter while editing book reviews for The Nervous Breakdown. I always looked forward to his unique brand of intelligence and eloquence—his work was so fluent, in fact, that I’d worry his pieces would outshine their subject. His essay about Twin Peaks is proof that he needs not look far for a subject worthy of all the smarts and style of those reviews. A very personal and searching piece, he deftly weaves together the show’s themes with his own journey from adolescence into early adulthood. It’s a simply fantastic piece, and I encourage you to read it now at Los Angeles Review of Books.
