Great Moments In Truth In Advertising

I was just browsing a local bookstore and saw they're carrying James Frey's memoir A Million Little Pieces. I haven't read it, but I did follow the controversy when it became apparent that Frey grossly exaggerated a lot of things. (An early proponent of the "speculative documentary" style, you might say.) Dude even got a highly public bitch-slapping from Oprah.

So it's nice to see his Spanish publisher decided - wisely, I'd say - to downsize the title to merely A Thousand Little Pieces. That seems a little more like it.
