Actor-writer James Franco and best-selling author Michael Cunningham discuss how they met and their new books in a video interview. Cunningham calls Franco a "very promising, brand-new writer" but jokes that Franco was illiterate and had to be taught the alphabet when the actor attended his writing class at Brooklyn College.
Cunningham, whose latest novel, By Nightfall, was published this week, won a Pulitzer Prize for his 1998 novel The Hours. Franco's first book, Palo Alto: Stories, will be published in October.
