Borders, and Barnes and Noble United States bookstore chains have both selected three-time Oscar-nominated director David Lynch's soon-to-be-released new book, 'Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity' (Tarcher/Penguin) for a special sales promotion in more than 1,600 stores throughout the US.

The book, which can currently be pre-ordered at, officially goes on sale December 28th and will be prominently showcased, from January 1 to 29, on sales tables in the front area of every single Borders, Barnes & Noble, and Walden book stores in the nation, as well as hundreds of independent book stores.

Called the film director of our era, Lynch writes beautifully—in simple, penetrating, profound and captivating words—about Transcendental Meditation, creativity, and film in the book.

Despite his incredibly busy schedule promoting his new film at the same time, Lynch has also agreed to do major national publicity, including traveling to a few key US cities in January.

In addition, Lynch's literary agent is working with top publishers representing more than 50 countries throughout Europe, Asia, and South America for translation and international distribution of the book for a release date in March or April of 2007.

Here are excerpts from editorial reviews on Catching the Big Fish:

In Catching the Big Fish, Lynch writes candidly about the tremendous creative benefits he has gained from his thirty-two-year commitment to practicing Transcendental Meditation.

In brief chapters, Lynch describes the experience of 'diving within' and 'catching' ideas like fish-and then preparing them for television or movie screens, and other mediums in which Lynch works, such as photography and painting.

Catching the Big Fish provides unprecedented insight into Lynch's methods, as it also offers a set of practical ideas that speak to matters of personal fulfillment, increased creativity, and greater harmony with one's surroundings.
