Why would you trust...

...a man who is famous for lying?

James Frey, the author of the *ahem* fact challenged "memoir" A Million Little Pieces, wants YOU to write books for him. Must be able to write to an outline, meet deadlines, and not question the small print in the contract.

Oh, and if you make the grade you can't tell anyone.

John Skalzi's response to the NY Times story:

"Just to be clear, if James Frey (or anyone else) tried to offer me this contract to write a book, here’s what I would do: Have my agent schedule a meeting with him for the clear and specific purpose of kicking him hard and square in the balls."
