Item Details

" Actors Anonymous is unsettling, funny, personal, and dark, a story told in many forms, from testimonials (in the style of Alcoholics Anonymous) and scripts to letters, diaries, and more. Franco turns his "James Franco" persona inside out--sometimes humorously, often mercilessly. The book brims with profound insights into the nature and purpose of acting, bawdy satires of the high life, as well as deeply moving portraits of aspiring actors who never quite made it. Franco's seemingly inexhaustible celebrity currency makes this that rare work in which the writer's fame matches his considerable literary ambition. Partly inspired by Alcoholics Anonymous's Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, Actors Anonymous is an intense, wild ride that's pure Franco. "--

This novel was an honest, and humorous read, which I liked. Although, for me personally, it got a bit slow half-way through, and caused me to lose some interest. But that's besides that point, if you're a fan of J.F then you'd most likely be intrigued, but otherwise I wouldn't necessarily recommend this book to anyone opposite of that, perhaps
for example; somebody like my mom. You definitely have to be a fan of Franco, or at least interested in investigating the closed doors behind his career, and (somewhat of a promiscuous) life. Cheers.
