Description"Palo Alto" is the debut of a powerful new literary voice. Written with an immediacy and sense of place "Palo Alto" traces the lives of an extended 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. Franco presents his characters in all their raw humanity, while at the same time providing insight into the teenage mind. In the classic American tradition of story-cycles such as Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio, "Palo Alto" presents a stark, vivid, disturbing, but, above all, compassionate portrait of lives on the rough fringes of youth.

Not only can James act but he can write as well. Im not going to go into too much detail but this is a really great collection of well written short stories about kids growing up in palo alto and what they get up to. Again i cant express how well written this book is and how entertaining it is. Ive read this a half dozen times now and cant wait to see what James comes out with next. by Kyle Lewis
