The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, 1990
Laura Palmer, Twin Peaks
Twin Peaks creator David Lynch didn’t look far to find a writer for this fictional diary of his show’s iconic murder victim: He gave the job to his daughter, Jennifer. The diary, which follows Laura from her 12th birthday through her increasingly dark experiences involving drugs and abuse, climbed up to the number four spot on the New York Times paperback fiction best seller list in 1990. — Adam Markovitz
