James Frey was humiliated when it was discovered that his drug abuse/redemption memoir, One Million Little Pieces, was mostly made up. Oprah blasted him on her television show and a class action suit was filed by readers who wanted their money back. Now HarperCollins has given Frey a book contract to write a novel. Does Frey deserve a second chance at success? Will you buy his book?
