Bad Memory


James Frey ( The Trouble With Memoirs — Jan. 23, 2006 — Page 1) appears to have lied in his memoirs. I think the publisher must bear some responsibility when he shopped his book first as fiction, then changed it to a memoir before it was published. I can just hear the publisher’s lackey telling him, “It’s a great book, but it’ll never sell as fiction. It would make a dynamite memoir though.” Maybe no one had to say it, but he appears to have gotten the message.
