JAMES FREY'S BOOK

While the author billed A Million Little Pieces as a memoir, it was after he appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show that it was revealed the bestseller was more fiction than truth. Winfrey confronted Frey about fabricating parts of the book in January 2006, after she gave it a coveted spot in her highly influential book club. "It is difficult for me to talk to you because I feel really duped," she said. "But more importantly, I feel that you betrayed millions of readers."
