I'm with those who think James Frey is a fraud. Furthermore, contrary to Oprah and Nan Talese, I think that what he did is unequivocally wrong--for the reasons outlined by Seth Mnookin in Slate, among others.

Here's what Frey thinks of fakers, according to his own "memoir." Just replace "gold records" with "bestsellers."

Were I in my normal frame of mind, I would stand up, point my finger, scream Fraud, and chase this Chump Motherfucker down and give him a beating. Were I in my normal frame of mind, after I gave him his beating, I would make him come back here and apologize to everyone for wasting their precious time. After the apology, I would tell him that if I ever heard of him spewing his bullshit fantasies in Public again, I would cut off his precious hair, scar his precious lips, and take all of his goddamn gold records and shove them straight up his ass.

When I was first injured, my mother loaned me this book to read. I never got past the first chapter. Part of it was the formatting and the other part was the false ring to it.
