I just finished reading the book! A Million Little Pieces. The reader in me couldn’t put it down in the home stretch. So fascinating and compelling.

But the writer in me is really blown away. Author James Frey is beyond brutally frank. Sometimes I have so much fear about revealing what is true and this man just unloads everything onto those pages. There are parts I couldn’t read while eating lunch. There is blatant emotion around love and sickness and rebellion.

Something about finishing it made me immediately do some serious work on my own book. I strive for that kind of real on my own pages. It can only evoke real in readers.

What a read.
