I don’t really care much for James Frey’s new one, which seems to be courting controversy for the sake of it. Likewise, I didn’t understand all the Oprah-guff surrounding ‘Million Little Pieces’ – it didn’t matter to me if it was biographical or not, nor if he claimed it was. At the end of the day, it’s a story, isn’t it? In my opinion, Bright Shiny Morning is undoubtedly his best. It’s a great, sprawling book about a great, sprawling city.

When she was done she drove to Larry’s Firearms. She bought a brand-new Colt .45. She submitted the information necessary to acquire the weapon. She left with a smile. Tomorrow she’s going to pick up the weapon, bring it home, load it. At that point, she will make the decision, find him and shoot him in the face and kill him, or put the gun in her own mouth and blow the back of her head away.
