Reviews

"It's hard to tell where the real James Franco ends and the cartoonish public figure begins--which is precisely the point...a clever piece of performance art that digs deeper into Provocative Artist James Franco."
--"LA Magazine"
"The Franco commodity is now so meta, so fierce, that picking apart the various layers of who is "James Franco" is futile: he is always and never himself.... Franco builds upon his Writer persona, entwining everything we know so far from the pages of" Palo Alto" (2010), "A California Childhood" (2013) and "Actors Anonymous" (2013) to bring together a slick, stylish, magazine-like hard cover book that will sit fluorescently and awkwardly alongside novels on any good book shelf. It is a book that begins and ends with him: preparing, transforming, performing."
--"The Vine"
"This is not what you are looking for if you are looking to read a typical Hollywood tell-all. Franco takes the medium and turns it upside down to his advantage, which is no problem for the king of ambiguity. Said Franco, 'There are many different forms in this book.'"
--"Fashion Times"

.."a peek into the actor's life that's a pretty as an Instagram."
