Get Rich and Keep Lyin’

The Frey scandal, it seems, has done very little to dent Frey’s career. This morning, Publishers Lunch reports that Frey has sold not one, but two novels:

Author of A Million Little Pieces James Frey’s first novel, a multi-voiced, multi-threaded story of contemporary Los Angeles, and a second book, again to Sean McDonald at Riverhead, for publication beginning in fall 2007, by Kassie Evashevski at Brillstein-Grey (world English).

  1. PM reported the deal on the paid-subscription site about a week or so ago, which means the actual deal might have been made weeks, if not months in advance. Not that this wouldn’t have happened anyway, but the timing isn’t quite as weird as you might think.

  2. I read somewhere earlier today that he wrote introductions for British reissues of Miller’s Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. I wonder if he’s even read them.
