So he wants to write books that "change the world" by putting out crap YA? What's actualy funny is I, like most of the world, forget this person even exists until he makes his presence known again...

Fuck that guy, huh? I mean, just fuck him. He's like ... he's like the fucking Lex Luthor of the literary world.

Yeah, the Nancy Drew-Hardy Boys people are battening down the hatches right now.

Wow. He's like some awful, coked-up post-millennial Edward Stratemeyer.

"Frey said he was interested in conceiving commercial ideas that would sell extremely well."

Wow. What a revolutionary.

I hate these guys who think being a dick is somehow virtuous. I'm not an Oprah fan by any means, but I'm ecstatic that that it still burns that she embarrassed him in front of millions of people.

Frey said he never considered whether A Million Little Pieces was fiction or nonfiction—and anyway, before the memoir craze of the nineties, it would have been published as a novel.

And if he'd published it as a novel instead of dishonestly jumping on the memoir craze to get more attention and money, he wouldn't have faced so much trouble. Is "Selling the story you made up as fiction is okay, but selling the story you made up as the truth is lying" really such a hard concept to grasp?
