James Frey wakes up on a plane, with no memory of the preceding two weeks. His face is cut and his body is covered with bruises. He has no wallet and no idea of his destination. He has abused alcohol and every drug he can lay his hands on for a decade – and he is aged only twenty-three.

What happens next is one of the most powerful and extreme stories ever told. His family takes him to a rehabilitation centre. And James Frey starts his perilous journey back to the world of the drug and alcohol-free living. His lack of self-pity is unflinching and searing.

A Million Little Pieces is a dazzling account of a life destroyed and a life reconstructed. It is also the introduction of a bold and talented literary voice.

Customer Reviews

Compulsive, if emotionally bruising.

Shocking, well written (I normally don’t like American writing) and excoriating account of an ascent from the hell of drug and alcohol dependency of a young man. It wasn’t easy or comfortable to read, but it was compulsive and wholly believable. It was also pretty much life-changing in that it has moderated my rather set and self-satisfied views about addiction of any kind. James Frey spares no detail, and I was surprised to discover his almost total lack of self-pity. I have no idea where he finds his strength, and I cannot express how much I admire his stance of accountability: no-one but he is to blame for his situation. I’m not sure why I bought this book in the first place – it is so far removed from my normal choice of reading matter, but I’m so glad I did. I think that if people were compelled to read this at a very young age, it might prevent more than a few falling into a similar destructive cycle. The ending, to my astonishment, had me crying, and I still feel (some months later) physically and emotionally bruised by this book.

The gruesome reality of addiction and beating all the odds against you

The Independent dubbed this as ‘turbocharged’ and I think it is a good overall summary. Like many of my book purchases, I procrastinate for a long time and then hit the purchase button in the hope that I will be swept away into the authors world and come out smiling. A Million Little Pieces did this for me.

One Of The Best Books Ever Written

A Million Little Pieces is the best of James Frey. If you’ve heard about it and thinking about getting it just get it. The way he writes is completely unique and like no other. There aren’t words to describe how amazing A Million Little Pieces is. Follow it with My Friend Leonard. These books have a very special place in my heart and no doubt a lot of other peoples hearts as well.
