A Million Little Pieces is a book by James Frey , originally sold as a memoir and later marketed as a semi-fictional novel following accusations of literary forgery. While initially promoted as a memoir, it was later discovered that many of the events described in the book never happened. A badly tattered James awakens on an airplane to Chicago, with no recollection of his injuries or of how he ended up on the plane. He is met by his parents at the airport, who take him to a rehabilitation clinic. We find out that James is 23 years old, and has been an alcoholic for ten years, and a crack addict for three. He is also wanted by the police in three states on several charges. As he checks into the rehab clinic, he is forced to quit his substance abuse, a transition that we find out later probably saves his life, but is also an incredibly agonizing event.
