Brooklyn Librarians: Frey’s a Fiction Writer

bpl.jpgGalleyCat has just recieved an anonymous tip, which we’ve been able to independently confirm, that the Brooklyn Public Library has changed its classification for James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces from its original Dewey decimal number, 362.29 (for nonfiction about drug use and abuse), to FIC—which, yes, means they consider it fiction.

The BPL representative I spoke to on the phone just now said an official statement would be forthcoming early next week when asked about the reasoning behind the designation, and we’ll look forward to learning the formal basis for that decision, but I think we all know why, right?
