“Lana spends a lot of time alone because everyone wants in,” writes James Franco, in his poetic tribute to Lana Del Rey called “Shades of Cool”, named after a stunner off last year’s Ultraviolence. He concludes his piece: “I wanted to interview Lana for a book and she said, ‘Just write around me, it’s better if it’s not my own words. It’s almost better if you don’t get me exactly, but try.’”
It looks like he went ahead and did it. That’s its cover up there.
It’s is called Flip-Side: Real And Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey and it will be released next March on Brooklyn-based independent publisher, powerHouse Books. The 100-page book was co-authored by David Shields.
