A Million Little Lies

Oprah's book club recently recommended 'A Million Little Pieces' by James Frey. A book of 'memoirs'. Turns out, he was bluffing.

Fiction passed under the guise of fact, and what did he get - a nice old spanking from Momma Oprah.

The publishers though outwardly disgusted are jumping for joy - and the author has got the two greatest publicity pushes that an author can hope for - Oprah Book Club nomination, and Oprah public renunciation.

At last check James Frey was laughing his way to the bank.
