Overview

Imagina que te despiertas en un avión. No tienes ni idea de dónde has estado ni de adónde vas. No recuerdas nada de las dos últimas semanas. Imagina que te faltan cuatro dientes, que tienes la nariz rota y una herida en la mejilla. Imagina que vas sin cartera, sin dinero, y no tienes trabajo. Imagina que te está buscando la policía. Imagina que eres alcohólico desde hace diez años y adicto al crack desde hace tres. ¿Qué harías?

A los veintitrés años, James Frey ingresó en un centro de desintoxicación. Destruido física y mentalmente de forma casi irremediable, debía enfrentarse a una difícil decisión: aceptar que no llegaría a cumplir los veinticuatro, o cambiar drásticamente el curso de su vida. Rodeado de pacientes en la misma situación -entre los que había un juez, un pandillero, un boxeador que había sido campeón mundial y una frágil ex prostituta-, Frey luchó contra el dogma de "Cómo recuperarse" para conseguir encontrar su propio camino, y decidir qué futuro, si le esperaba alguno, era el que quería alcanzar.

Aclamado por la crítica como todo un fenómeno literario y best seller desde los primeros días de su publicación, En mil pedazos es el testimonio inusualmente sincero de un hombre cuyo furioso impulso de autodestrucción sólo es comparable a su inagotable deseo de sobrevivir.

Biography

James Frey in his own words:

"I was born in Cleveland, Ohio. I spent most of my childhood in Ohio and Michigan, and I have also lived in Boston, Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, Sao Paulo Brazil, London, Paris, Chicago, and Los Angeles. I graduated from high school in 1988 and received further education at Denison University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1993, I was sent to the Hazelden Foundation for the treatment of cocaine addiction and alcoholism. I moved to Chicago in 1994, where I worked variety of jobs, including doorman, stockboy, and member of a janitorial crew. In 1996, I moved to Los Angeles where I worked as a screenwriter, director and producer. In 2000, I took second mortgage on my house, and spent a year writing A Million Little Pieces. It was published by Nan A. Talese/Doubleday in May of 2003 and became a New York Times bestseller, a #1 national bestseller, and an international bestseller. In 2004, I wrote My Friend Leonard, which is a sequel to A Million Little Pieces. In June of 2005, Riverhead Books published My Friend Leonard, which also became a New York Times and international bestseller. I live in New York with my wife, daughter, and two dogs."
