The truth about lies

I have plenty words to say about this whole James Frey (and again here and here) thing but I'm just too damn tired to say them.


  1. i'll be expecting some words later, ok.

  2. I do find this statistic interesting,

    "I never expected the book to come under the type of scrutiny that it has," Frey told King. "Memoir -- the word literally means 'my story.' A memoir is a subjective retelling of events.

    A memoir is within the genre of nonfiction. I don't think it's necessarily appropriate to say I've conned anyone. You know, the book is 432 pages long. The total page count of disputed events is 18, which is less than 5 percent of the total book."
