According to an article in today’s New York Times, James Frey, the author who admitted making up portions of his best-selling memoir “A Million Little Pieces,” has signed a new book deal for his novel “Bright Shiny Morning” with HarperCollins. After a widely publicized rebuke by Oprah Winfrey, who had selected “A Million Little Pieces” for her television book club, the publisher of his previous memoir canceled plans to publish his novel.
