Inspired by Alcoholics Anonymous's 12 Steps and 12 Traditions, James Franco's Actors Anonymous is a dark, genre-bending work that mixes memoir and pure invention in an examination of celebrity, acting and the making of fiction. A series of stories told in many forms, Actors Anonymous provides a fascinating meditation on the art of Hollywood, along with nightmarish tales of excess.
