This just in: making up shit about really tragic stuff that has happened to other people is a really awesome way to get the New York Times to talk about you for months.

Plus, if you’re anything like James Frey, people will give you a tiny bit of shit, but then still totally let you write more books! And then you’ll get a movie deal, and then some smoking hack in a back room will write a novel from the screenplay.

Good God, it’s a good day to be a bullshit artist.
