James Frey

James Frey is the author of A Million Little Pieces, My Friend Leonard, and Bright Shiny Morning.

Anna Metcalfe of the Financial Times put a few questions to the author, including:

What book changed your life?

Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller. The first time I read it I couldn’t believe someone had written it. It’s offensive and pure and clear.

Who are your literary heroes?

Baudelaire, CĂ©line, Kerouac, Brett Easton Ellis, Henry Miller.
