Frey Settles With Duped Readers

The author who famously duped America into believing his fictional work A MILLION LITTLE PIECES was a memoir has settled a series of lawsuits filed by angry readers. JAMES FREY's book became a best seller after OPRAH WINFREY hailed it on her daily talk show, but the writer's memoirs were scrutinised by website thesmokinggun.com and the author was quickly shamed into admitting the book was littered with fiction. Frey and his publishers at Random House and have agreed in principle to settle lawsuits filed by readers who said they were upset by fabrications in A Million Little Pieces, according to published reports. In the terms of the new deal, all readers who bought the book in good faith on or before 26 January (06), when Frey and Random House bosses confessed that parts of the book were made up, will be eligible for a full refund. Neither Frey nor the publisher have admitted any wrongdoing, according to the New York Times.
