Controversial author James Frey has accumulated a net worth of $4.5 million over his career. And he's achieved this net worth despite being widely considered a fabulist, after his supposed autobiography A Million Little Pieces was revealed to be largely fabricated. Frey's career began in show business, getting two of his screenplays produced in 1998: Kissing a Fool and Sugar: The Fall of the West. The latter film was also directed by Frey. In 2003, the aforementioned "autobiography" A Million Little Pieces was published to much acclaim, receiving a "Book of the Year" designation from Amazon.com. After more success in the publishing world, the investigative website The Smoking Gun published "A Million Little Lies: Exposing James Frey's Fiction Addiction" which documented the many inconsistencies with the truth that could be found in Frey's book. This caused a firestorm of controversy, with Frey asserting that while small details in the book had been embellished or changed to protect the identities of those involved, the "reality of his addiction" was all factually accurate. The controversy eventually led to a live interview between Frey and one of the book's early champions Oprah Winfrey, in which he both admitted to and was called to task for his deception.
James Christopher Frey (born September 12, 1969) is an American writer. His books A Million Little Pieces (2003) and My Friend Leonard (2005), as well as Bright Shiny Morning (2008), were bestsellers. He was the subject of a scandal when investigators discovered that major elements of A Million Little Pieces, a purportedly autobiographical account of the author's struggle with addiction, were untrue.
Frey graduated from Denison University in Granville, Ohio in 1992. Before Frey began his writing career, he held several jobs in the Chicago area while studying at the Art Institute of Chicago. Frey then moved to Los Angeles and found work as a screenwriter, director, and producer. In the spring of 1996, Frey started writing A Million Little Pieces, originally presented as a memoir of his experiences during his treatment for alcohol and drug addiction at a rehabilitation center in Minnesota.
Frey also wrote the screenplays to the films Kissing a Fool and Sugar: The Fall of the West. Both were produced in 1998, the latter of which he directed as well.
Doubleday published A Million Little Pieces in April 2003, and Amazon.com editors selected it as their favorite book of that year. The New Yorker praised the book as "A frenzied, electrifying description of the experience."
In 2004, Frey wrote My Friend Leonard, which continued where A Million Little Pieces left off, and centered on the father-son relationship which Frey and his friend Leonard, from Hazelden, shared. My Friend Leonard was published in June 2005 by Riverhead, and became a bestseller. Amazon.com editors selected My Friend Leonard as their No.5 favorite book of 2005.
In 2007, Frey wrote Bright Shiny Morning, which was published in May 2008 by HarperCollins.
Frey's books have been published in thirty-one languages worldwide.
In 2010, Frey collaborated with Jobie Hughes on the books I Am Number Four and The Power of Six.
On January 8, 2006, The Smoking Gun website published an article: "A
