The Times is always the last to know

Poor New York Times. Someone should tell them that James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces is actually fiction. ‘Cause yesterday’s Best Seller list came out in the NYBR, and My Friend Leonard is #1 and A Million Little Pieces is # 15… BOTH STILL ON THE NON-FICTION LIST.

Non-Fiction. Hm. They must not know that Frey’s works are based on fabrications. I mean, how would they?

Before the Fame, a Million Little Skeptics [NYT]
Bending the Truth in a Million Little Ways [NYT]
His So-Called Life [NYT]
My True Story, More or Less, And Maybe Not at All
[NYT]
A Million Little Corrections [NYT]
Call It Fiction [NYT]

…or, you know, not.
