Synopsis

At the age of 23, James Frey woke up on a plane to find his front teeth knocked out and his nose broken. He had no idea where the plane was headed nor any recollection of the past two weeks. An alcoholic for ten years and a crack addict for three, he checked into a treatment facility shortly after landing. There he was told he could either stop using or die before he reached age 24. This is Frey's acclaimed account of his six weeks in rehab.




From the Trade Paperback edition.

Frey’s message is one of triumph and the ability of the human will to conquer despite overwhelming odds. His direct style, vivid details, and harsh dose of reality effectively convey his message to all who will read his account.

A Million Little Pieces is a darkly fascinating read, an illicit stroll into a hopeless territory which many enter, and from which few return.

...Frey’s writing style is cutting, sharp, deadpan…and graphic. The genuineness of his writing provides a framework parallel to the story itself.
