NEW YORK – David Lynch wants to tell the straight story of his life, but with a little help.

The 69-year-old filmmaker is collaborating with his friend the journalist and critic Kristine McKenna on the memoir-biography “Life & Work,” Grand Central Publishing announced Monday. The book will combine Lynch’s reflections with material from McKenna based on dozens of interviews Lynch’s friends, family and colleagues. Grand Central, a division of Hachette Book Group, plans a 2017 release.

Lynch’s credits include the films “Blue Velvet,” “Eraserhead” and “The Straight Story” and the TV drama “Twin Peaks.”
