Selfie-lover James Franco is charming and talented. He first gained popularity in TV's General Hospital and Freaks and Geeks. He acquired many nominations and awards for his amazing performances in TNT's James Dean and the movie 127 Hours.

What is James Franco's new favorite book?
Yesterday he tweeted and posted on Instagram, "My new Favorite book: The Long Home by William Gay. Check out the piece on VICE: http://www.vice.com/read/i-love-william-gays-the-long-home-851."
From Amazon.com blurb: Set in rural Tennessee in the 1940s, 'The Long Home' will bring to mind once again the greatest Southern novelists and will haunt the reader with its sense of solitude , longing, and the deliverance that is always just out of reach.
