“I embrace (the Million Little Pieces episode) as part of my career, but I try not to make it my entire career,” James Frey says.

If you read, you’ve heard of writer James Frey.

However, there’s a chance you don’t know much about Frey the art dealer, Frey the art writer or Frey the conceptual writer.

Oh, and Frey the Class Dad.

Arguably one of the most controversial American writers in recent memory, Frey is coming to the five-day Blue Metropolis Montreal International Literary Festival, which begins Wednesday.

“I have a 5-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son,” Frey said during a telephone interview from New York City. “I’m lucky enough to have a job with flexible hours so I can spend more time with my kids. I love their (pre)school. Little kids are the best.”

Frey speaks with Joel Yanofsky as part of the festival’s CBC Blue Literary Series, at Hôtel Delta Centre-Ville, Saturday, April 24 at 3 p.m.
