James Franco's Debut Novel

Monday, October 14, 2013

James Franco talks about his acting and directing career, as well as his debut novel, Actors Anonymous. Loosely modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous’s Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, the book is an intense, wild ride into the dark heart of celebrity. He'll also discuss his latest film based on Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying.

I recently read this novel and looked into his other work

I have to say I find him inspiring.
He makes an incredible amount of interesting work, despite the antagonism of the literary and art worlds. Brave, I think.
And his novel is very good.

Whoa... he sounds like someone who's been on a coke binge and hasn't slept in 36 hours

I’m reading Sherwood Anderson. What are you reading to prepare for this film?

Lord, this guy is embarrassing. It's one thing for people to think you are a shallow idiot. It's another thing to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
