"The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer" (by Jennifer Lynch, David Lynch's daughter) was very well-done; it read a lot like real writing from child sexual abuse survivors that I've encountered. Since Laura was sexually abused, that's appropriate, but most TV tie-ins aren't that well researched. The character was very well done in the movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me as well.

"Laura Palmer" is also the stage name of a porn star from Europe (some sources say France, some the Czech Republic). She's a five-foot-ten blonde who also used the names Petra Sexton and Sage Kirkpatrick before settling on her current alias. All the reviews seem to feel her English isn't very good but her performances are.
