Elle Magazine interview

22 Oct, 2010

Franco gives interview to Elle about his book series Palo Alto. 

I’d been working on them for a while. I was aware that there’s a lot of material out there that deals with this age group. A lot of it is depicted in a way that the ­writer makes appealing enough but doesn’t own in a certain way doesn’t own certain kinds of acting-out ­behaviors. I was given a lot just by being born where I was, but adolescence is a hard period in anyone’s life. It took time to ­figure out how to group the Palo Alto stories in a way that gives an overall impression that’s focused and intense.
