Australian Broadcasting: Frey, Oprah stand by controversial memoir. James Frey says he stands by the “essential truth” of his memoir, A Million Little Pieces, after accusations were levelled that significant parts of the Oprah-approved best-seller were fabricated. Frey chose CNN’s ‘Larry King Live’ show to defend his memoir and at the end of the show, Oprah Winfrey phoned in to say that she remained happy to recommend the book, despite the controversy.
This guy’s “essential truth” is essential BS. Defending himself this way, Frey looks even worse.
Had he called this what it is — a novel — to begin with, he’s have been more honest. A lot more.
