Picking Up the Million Little Pieces

If you bought James Frey's memoir, A Million Little Pieces under the impression that it was a true story, you may be entitled to your money back!

You would need to be able to prove that you bought it before Jan 26 when Frey and Random house admitted that parts of the book had been fabricated. Though how you'd make your claim in Malaysia, I really don't know.

Prediction: publishers are going to have to do a whole lot more fact-checking to weed out the fakes, if they don't want to face litigation.

A book is a book. Why get money back, unless it sucked? Just re-categorise it as "fiction".
