The last time James Frey appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show it was to receive a public spanking for passing off his largely fictional tome A Million Little Pieces as a memoir. That was 2006, and Frey has had some time to recover.
He also has a new book to plug, The Final Testament of the Holy Bible, an admittedly fictional novel about a re-imagined Jesus Christ living in modern times. Frey seems to have embraced controversy as his ticket back to the best seller list — his version of Christ is a bed-hopping, bisexual troublemaker.
Oprah apologized to James a couple of years ago, and he appreciated it. So he agreed to go back on her show and talk about everything that’s happened over the last five years.
