Description

Amazon.comBook DescriptionAt 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

Freyâ€s acclaimed account of his six weeks in rehab.Amazon.com ReviewThe electrifying opening of

James Frey's debut memoir,A Million Little Pieces, smash-cuts to the then 23-year-old author on a Chicagobound

plane 'covered with a colorful mixture of spit, snot, urine, vomit and blood.' Wanted by authorities in

three states, without ID or any money, his face mangled and missing four front teeth, Frey is on a steep

descent from a dark marathon of drug abuse. His stunned family checks him into a famed Minnesota drug

treatment center where a doctor promises 'he will be dead within a few days' if he starts to use again, and

where Frey spends two agonizing months of detox confronting 'The Fury' head on: I want a drink. I want

fifty drinks. I want a bottle of the purest, strongest, most destructive, most poisonous alcohol on Earth. I

want fifty bottles of it. I want crack, dirty and yellow and filled with formaldehyde. I want a pile of powder

meth, five hundred hits of acid, a garbage bag filled with mushrooms, a tube of glue bigger than a truck, a

pool of gas large enough to drown in. I want something anything whatever however as much as I can. One of

the more harrowing sections is when Frey submits to major dental surgery without the benefit of anesthesia

or painkillers (he fights the mind-blowing waves of 'bayonet' pain by digging his fingers into two old tennis

balls until his nails crack). His fellow patients include a damaged crack addict with whom Frey wades into

an ill-fated relationship, a federal judge, a former championship boxer, and a mobster (who, upon his release,

throws a hilarious surf-and-turf bacchanal, complete with pay-per-view boxing). In the book's epilogue,

when Frey ticks off a terse update on everyone, you can almost hear the Jim Carroll Band's brutal survivor's

lament 'People Who Died' kicking in on the soundtrack of the inevitable film adaptation. The rage-fueled

memoir is kept in check by Frey's cool, minimalist style. Like his steady mantra, 'I am an Alcoholic and I am

a drug Addict and I am a Criminal,' Frey's use of repetition takes on a crisp, lyrical quality which lends itself

to the surreal experience. The book could have benefited from being a bit leaner. Nearly 400 pages is a long

time to spend under Frey's influence, and the stylistic acrobatics (no quotation marks, random capitalization,

left-aligned text, wild paragraph breaks) may seem too self-conscious for some readers, but beyond the

literary fireworks lurks a fierce debut.--Brad Thomas Parsons “Gripping.... A great story.... You can't

help but cheer his victory.― —Los Angeles Times Book Review  “James Freyâ€s staggering

recovery memoir could well be seen as the final word on the topic.― —San Francisco Chronicle

 “The most lacerating tale of drug addiction since William S. Burroughsâ€Junky.― —The Boston

Globe  “Freyâ€s book sets itself apart ... spare, deadpan language belies the horror of what heâ€s

describing — a meltdown dispatched in telegrams.― —The New York Times Book Review  “Anyone


who has ever felt broken and wished for a better life will find inspiration in Freyâ€s story.― —People

 “Ripping, gripping.... Itâ€s a staggeringly sober book whose stylistic tics are well-suited to its

subject matter, and a finger in the eye of the culture of complaint.... Engrossing.― —ThePhiladelphia

Inquirer  “A frenzied, electrifying description of the experience.― —The New Yorker  “We

finishA Million Little Pieces like miners lifted out of a collapsed shaft: exhausted, blackened, oxygenstarved,

but alive, thrillingly, amazingly alive.― —Minneapolis Star-Tribune  “One of the most

compelling books of the year.... Incredibly bold.... Somehow accomplishes what three decades†worth of

cheesy public service announcements and after-school specials have failed to do: depict hard-core drug

addiction as the self-inflicted apocalypse that it is.― —The New York Post  “Thoroughly

engrossing.... Hard-bitten existentialism bristles on every page.... Freyâ€s prose is muscular and tough,

ideal for conveying extreme physical anguish and steely determination.― —Entertainment Weekly

 “Incredible.... Mesmerizing.... Heart-rending.― —Atlanta Journal-Constitution  “A rising

literary star ... has birthed a poetic account of his recovery. [
