    Should it matter if a memoir is truthful By asking this question, I guess it s safe to say I went into James Frey s My Friend Leonard with some misgivings The act of memoir writing inherently produces meaning, but that s not the same as manufacturing meaning, not the same as finding events which possibly didn t happen to fit a pre determined story What s called truth may lie in a fuzzy area of the memoirist s memory not always accessible as a complete emotional visual record That s why memoirists often take repeated stabs at the same memory as they try to determine what really happened and what it all meant I don t really like the idea of fact checking memoirists, but knowing big parts of a memoir have been intentionally falsified changes how I react to a work When I read the opening about jail time in Frey s work which readers now know didn t happen, I decided to read this as a fictional memoir and see where it took me It was engaging Leonard, a larger than life father figure l...

    I picked up My Friend Leonard by James Frey This book is the follow up to A Million Little Pieces which is the book that started such a furor last year The one that the author claimed to be true and the Smoking Gun website discovered was likely an exaggeration of the truth Oprah went a lil crazy and everyone trashed the guy What a lot of people didn t take into account is that true or somewhat true A Million Little Pieces was a great book A story of the hell of rehabilitaion from drugs and alcohol that rings true whether or not some of the details are fabricated There s a review of it somewhere in these blogs if you care to look for it But bottom line, I highly recommend taking the time to read it Now, My Friend Leonard picks up the author s life after he gets out of rehab and tells you how his life progressed from then on with the help, often uninvited, of his friend Leonard Frey s frantic style of writing keeps the pages turning and before you know it the end is happening The characters in Frey s books just kind of speak to you in a pe...

    I never cared whether Frey s A Million Little Pieces was real or not The truth is, if you enjoy his writing style, you re sure to be caught up in the environment and especially the characters he creates I read this in one day on a flight from San Diego to Detroit.My Friend Leonard pretty much picks up where A Million Little Pieces left off If you thought it couldn t get any worse,...

    Whether this book is fact or fiction does not mean crap to me, which was exactly my stance on A Million Little Pieces It was just a good book James reminds me a lot of someone I know and in some ways, of myself and some of my family members His friendship with Leonard, albeit ridiculous, was very special and the stories in this book made me laugh and cry If you read A Million Little Pieces you already knew wha...

    Years ago I read James Frey s now known as heavy on the fiction memoir A Million Little Pieces as an Oprah Pick This is the sequel to that book which I bought years ago but after the scandal and fury heaped upon Frey and the denouncement of his first book, I probably just set aside Anyway , unearthed and read while weeding out the crowded library, this is the story of James and his friend Leonard, a much established and successful conman who after meeting him in rehab at the end of Million Pieces adopts him as a son I actually like Frey s simplistic style of writing , where sentences ...

    I read A Million Little Pieces by James Frey and I liked it I devoured it Despite the controversy that a lot of it was made up It was made up to make James Frey look like a hardcore badass But really it turns out that he s just another entitled rich white kid with too much time on his hands and too much money so he does too many drugs then ends up in rehab Then writes a best selling memoir that turns out to be held together by lies and covered up by the convenient death of the majority of the characters No one to collaborate Yes in spite of all of this I enjoyed the story although it did make me think of Frey as kind of a pathetic douche So when I got an birthday gift card I eagerly ordered his second memoir , My Friend Leonard It s the continuation of his life story Emphasis on story It starts with him nearing the end of his three month jail sentence His girlfriend that he met in rehab kills herself before he can get to her The rest of the story is him trying to stay clean and hold on Leonard, the friend he made in rehab, features predominately He unofficially adopts Frey as his son and becomes his benefactor Leonard is ...

    I thought this one was so much far fetched than A Million Little Pieces If I doubted Pieces, this one I downright didn t believe Once again it should have been promoted as fiction, although actually I think it may have been promoted as such I thought Pieces was better because it described so much struggling to get to where he got, and My Friend Leonard was pretty much here I am, la di da with good things happening all the time and a good ending and everyone is happy ever after Totally unbe...

    I know everyone gave Mr Frey a whole lot of probably deserved shit for these two books of his, but I really enjoyed them I could even overlook that they were on Oprah s book club list which I got a LOT of shit about from my generally hateful friends Since I d heard about the inaccuracies in his first story A Million Little Pieces before read...

    Five stars simply for the last 30 40 pages of this book which never fails to make me cry like a baby.
