Thousands might have waited with baited breath for the liars latest release
B. DALTON BOOKSELLERS, EVERYWHERE, USA Today, thousands er, probably tens of people may have waited in line to receive their copy of James Freys newest big fat lie, Bright Shiny Morning scheduled to be released today. (I dont really know; I wouldnt be caught dead in that line.) In an attempt to redeem himself in the eyes of the 30-to-35-year-old male skateboarders and potheads who listed A Million Tiny Pieces a lame-ass story about drug addiction recovery that he later admitted was bogus on their myspace profile under their book interests, the author has written a new novel, using the word shiny as a nifty substitute for what us average readers would normally read as Bright Sunny Morning.
Poets and Writers magazine reports that Neither [the agent] nor the publisher wanted the book to be reviewed online months before publication, according to Freys agent. This strategy is not an embargo, the director of publicity at HarperCollins told PW. But perhaps its a new strategy wherein theyre hoping sheer suspense will compel his handful of devoted fans to buy the book without any information about the plot or context of the novel whatsoever ahead of time. If you care, the book is available online at Amazon.com. Its apparently so great people already bought and posted several used copies online so others can enjoy Bright Shiny Morning even faster, and cheaper. Janet Maslin even wrote a review of the book for the New York Times in a baby voice so his fans could understand how truly important his bright shining moment really is.
