"There were days when I definitely didn't want to get out of bed," fabulist James Frey told a sympathetic Lola Ogunnaike on CNN this morning, following a Tuesday reading from his new book, Bright, Shiny Morning (HarperCollins), at New York's Blender Theater (he was backed by a jazz pianist and has booked a metal band for future stops on his tour). Ogunnaike notes the disclaimer at the beginning of the book stating, "Nothing in this book should be considered accurate or reliable," and asks why he chose to write fiction instead of another memoir. Frey responds: "The irony is that if I wrote about my life in the last few years, nobody would believe me."
