So, I'm currently reading James Franco's Palo Alto. It's a collection of short, linked stories that explore adolescence in a raw, slightly-dark manner.
First impression? Well, the style of Franco's writing is blunt and dark which is quite interesting and I enjoy his portrayal of youth - he seems to have not lost touch with his own adolescence so the characters are presented in quite a believable way.
I'll let you know how this turns out I guess.
p.s. sorry for my lack of posting, I've been dealing with life atm
