Did Harper Purchase a James Frey Short Story Collection for $1 Million?

While Gawker merely reports rumor, I decided to make some calls. According to a decidedly nervous Tara Cook, who is Jonathan Burnham’s assistant, Harper can neither confirm nor deny that Harper purchased a new James Frey short story collection for $1 million. I have also left a message for Tina Andreadis. If I get anything substantive, I will let you know.

[UPDATE: Confirmed by Jeffrey Trachtenberg. Press release here. And, yes, Gawker, you are vindicated — somewhat.]


  1. Please do a google on John Dolan, who writes for the Exile, and read what he has to say about Mr. Frey before you decide to give this colossal douche another chance.
