Actor, writer, director, and conceptual artist James Franco wrote a book about Lana Del Rey titled Flip-Side: Real and Imaginary Conversations with Lana Del Rey out March 15, 2016. Franco wanted the “Honeymoon” singer to take a hands-on role with the book, however she passed. “Just write around me, it’s better if it’s not my own words,” Del Rey says. “It’s almost better if you don’t get me exactly, but try.”
Co-authored by writer David Shields, the upcoming 100-page text is entitled Flip-Side: Real And Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey, and its cover — which you can see below — features photos of Franco, Lana, her sister Chuck Grant, and MoMA director Klaus Biesenbach at New York’s Fort Tilden beach in July 2014.
