FORBES: The James Frey Redemption Train

The James Frey Redemption Train Rolls On With “I Am Number Four”

Writer James Frey suffered one of the most humiliating smack downs of all time when it turned out parts of his hit memoir, A Million Little Pieces, were fabricated.Oprah had chosen the book as one of her book club selections and the writer had to have his wrists slapped by the daytime doyenne on her TV show in from of millions of people.

Few would be able to make a comeback after that kind of punishment (not to mention the fact that he had lost the trust of thousands of readers).

But Frey has slowly been returning to the literary limelight. In 2008 he published the novel Bright Shiny Morning which landed on the New York Times bestseller list.

Now he’s making inroads in Hollywood. Frey co-wrote the young adult novel I Am Number Four which has been turned into a movie by Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks. A new trailer for the film is currently making the rounds on the Internet. (Click here to see the trailer.)
