Palo Alto: Stories

Autor James Franco
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 6 mai 2014
Now a provocative and impressive ("Variety") film from director Gia Coppola (Francis Ford Coppola s granddaughter) starring Emma Roberts, James Franco, Nat Wolff, and Val Kilmer the fiction debut from James Franco that "Vogue" called compelling and gutsy.
James Franco s story collection traces the lives of a group of teenagers as they experiment with vices of all kinds, struggle with their families and one another, and succumb to self-destructive, often heartless nihilism. In Lockheed a young woman s summer spent working a dull internship is suddenly upended by a spectacular incident of violence at a house party. In American History a high school freshman attempts to impress a girl with a realistic portrayal of a slave owner during a classroom skit only to have his feigned bigotry avenged. In I Could Kill Someone, a lonely teenager buys a gun with the aim of killing his high school tormentor, but begins to wonder about his bully s own inner life.
These spare and riveting ("O, The Oprah Magazine") stories are a compelling portrait of lives on the rough fringes of youth." Palo Alto" is, a collection of beautifully written stories ("Kirkus Reviews," starred review) that capture with perfect pitch the impossible exhilaration, the inevitable downbeatness, and the pure confusion of being an adolescent ("Elle").
Features a bonus essay by James Franco on Gia Coppola's film adaptation."
