James Franco: Actors Anonymous

book.jpgJames Franco says literature was his emotional and intellectual escape valve from the alternate reality of filmmaking, performance, and celebrity that he wildly portrays in his new novel, Actors Anonymous (Little A). The semi-fictional book (modeled after an AA recovery text) uses an ambitious array of styles, genres, forms, and voices to examine the volatile linkage between identity and celebrity culture. Franco talks about his literary life, writing in a hybrid mode, and how he achieved this book's complicated catharsis.
