Do you think James Frey did anything really wrong in writing the book A Million Little Pieces? I did not see what Oprah did to him. My sister in laws friend knew him and said that he was as bad as in the book.


I read the book and saw him on Oprah Like her, because it was described as a memoir, I thought it was true.
In the interview I believe he said how he overstated some things in the book like one of the most sympathetic characters a girl he met in treatment in the book he said she went on to commit suicide.
In the interview, he clarified that he had made up the suicide part.
So yeah I think that was wrong but over all I think he had good intentions to share what recovery is like.
I was in recovery myself.


Don’t promote your work of fiction as a “memoir” if you don’t want to be exposed as a fraud.
