James Frey “Hit One Out Of The Park,” Says Janet Maslin

So Janet Maslin did the whole “aping the author’s style in the review” thing– last attempted, to more winning affect, by Sam Anderson in his review of ‘Lush Life’:

“He got a second act. He got another chance. Look what he did with it. He stepped up to the plate and hit one out of the park. No more lying, no more melodrama, still run-on sentences still funny punctuation but so what. He became a furiously good storyteller this time.”

Do you trust Maslin? Do you trust Frey? Will you ever trust anyone ever again?
