Publisher's Summary

An intense, instantly engaging, hard-hitting, yet beautifully written memoir of a life beyond the brink that touches every nerve.
James Frey wakes up on a plane, with no memory of the preceding two weeks. His face is cut and his body is covered with bruises. He has no wallet and no idea of his destination. He has abused alcohol and every drug he can lay his hands on for a decade - and he is aged only 23.
What happens next is one of the most powerful and extreme stories ever told. His family takes him to a rehabilitation centre. And James Frey starts his perilous journey back to the world of the drug and alcohol-free living. His lack of self-pity is unflinching and searing.
A Million Little Pieces is a dazzling account of a life destroyed and a life reconstructed. It is also the introduction of a bold and talented literary voice.

What the Critics Say

"Excellent...Frey's storytelling feels compulsive, involuntary...poignant and tragic. The forthcoming film will almost certainly be a cult hit.... The good thing about Frey is that he writes as if he needs to; I hope his new compulsion thrives." (William Leith)
"James Frey's utterly mesmerising account...[is] easily the most remarkable non-fiction book about drugs and drug taking since Hunter S Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.... As a memoir, it is almost mythic. You can imagine it made epic by Martin Scorsese, the auteur of wayward American maleness in all its extremity.... Utterly compulsive." (Observer)
"Clear sighted and intellectually honest." (Literary Review)

Any additional comments?

I have never listened to a book quite like this before. I thought I had purchased a fiction book..it turned out to be 100% true! The style in which this book was written was so powerful it almost felt like I was in James Frey's skin. It was the most moving and incredible story of a man digging himself into the deepest depths and then finding the courage to literally pull himself back into the light.
The friends he made along the way will surprise you and perhaps make you realise that no matter how degraded a person has become, that nine times out of ten, there is still a good person willing to help his fellow man inside.
Some people may find this a little bit hard to get into the story, but do persevere. I promise you, you will listen to one of the most thought provoking storie in a long time.
