James Franco's 6 favorite books


Reality Hunger by David Shields. David, my teacher and friend, has made it his mission to deconstruct the novel as we know it. This book, which calls for a new way of thinking about fact and fiction, is a masterwork. Its content breaks down the expectations readers have while reading traditional narrative, while its form is a shining example of the new kind of narrative Shields endorses.

This Is Not a Novel by David Markson. The lists in this genre-bending book accumulate power through their juxtapositions. By the book's end, you feel in tune with a man's whole life and with a culture's literary heritage.
