Description


Now Nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album

The actors in James Franco's brilliant debut novel include a McDonald's drive-thru operator who spends his shift trying on accents; an ex-child star recalling a massive beachside bacchanal; hospital volunteers and Midwestern transplants; a vampire flick starlet who discovers a cryptic book written by a famous actor gone AWOL; and the ghost of River Phoenix. Then there's Franco himself, who prowls backstage, peering out between the lines before taking the stage with fascinating meditations on his art, along with nightmarish tales of excess. Hollywood has always been a private club, he writes. I open the gates. I say welcome. I say, Look inside.

Told in a dizzying array of styles from lyric essays and disarming testimonials to hilariously rambling text messages and ghostly footnotes and loosely modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous's Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, "Actors Anonymous" is an intense, wild ride into the dark heart of celebrity.
