Sam Taylor-Johnson has brought the bestseller to the big screen while bypassing the controversy that trailed it, leading Adam White to ask: why bother? It is also the least fascinating thing about A Million Little Pieces. The most captivating element of its existence is the noise that surrounds it — the accusations that it was largely faked, despite being marketed as a memoir, the literary-world war of words over its editing, and the piercing, terrifying glare of Oprah Winfrey , who elegantly destroyed Frey on live television over his apparent betrayal. Frey was 17, addicted to a potentially lethal combination of cocaine, meth and nitrous oxide, wanted in three states on possession charges and with a face turned inside out after falling head-first down a fire escape. By the time he arrived at a Minnesota rehabilitation centre, he had four missing teeth and a hole in his cheek. Rehab proved sordid, surreal and ultimately healing, a collection of equally damaged and addicted characters providing colour and guidance to the young Frey.

In the account of the incident in A Million Little Pieces, Frey, stacked to the rafters with crack and alcohol, hits a police officer with his car, reacts violently to arrest, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon among other things, and ends up sentenced to an day jail term. I was working at Random House when it freu going down; I remember that any of us who wanted to could go to the conference rooms where they were showing the Oprah episode where Nan Talese went on the show so the two of them could get all indignant and talk about how James Frey betrayed them and the American people and bunnies and apple pie.

I attempted to rate it based on the way I felt upon completing it, and without the perspective I now have which is likely affected by the scandal. It was too weighty, the subject material cut too deep. There was this poor fucked-up crack whore in my rehab who fell for me. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
