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?

A Million Little Corrections [NYT]

…or, you know, not.
