Palo Alto

by James Franco

Debut Books of the Month Modern and Classic Literary Fiction

Palo Alto Synopsis

Palo Alto is the debut of a powerful new literary voice. 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.
