The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer: Twin Peaks' problematic tie-in
The novel is said to be "As seen by Jennifer Lynch," and is written in a matter-of-fact tone from the point of view of Laura Palmer, a small-town teenager —a "good girl gone bad" — who is abused, terrorized and murdered by the demonic entity BOB. Lynch says she was told by her father and Mark Frost, co-creator of the series, to "be Laura Palmer,"and that she "knew Laura so well it was like automatic writing. It recounts standard teenage concerns of her first period, her first kiss, and her relationship with her parents, alongside experiences of sexual abuse, promiscuity, cocaine addiction, and her obsession with death. Laura's poetry foreshadows her murder. Her slow realisation of BOB's identity is described, although pages are 'missing' from the end of the diary, which ends with an undated entry in late , leaving the reader unable to reach a firm conclusion. Lynch said that "the careful reader will know the clues and who the killer is,"and BOB's identity as Laura's father is confirmed in the film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.
Lynch renders her a silent totem, rotting beneath the cheerful surface of small-town America. As is mostly the case in crime dramas, Twin Peaks is more concerned with the identity of the murderer, not the dead girl left behind. The book is a harrowing reminder that beneath the kitschy aesthetic, the loopy surrealism and the damn fine coffee, Twin Peaks was a show about child abuse.

I think it's real! The concept of repressed vs. Especially her unwanted desires within herself have distressed her during many of her entries since she began writing her diary, as up to that point in April and June she has had no explanation for them and at a number of times throughout her diary, she expresses fear of God sentencing her to Hell for her impure urges regarding drugs, sex, and generally being an overall defiant, "bad girl" whenever no-one is looking.
