JIMMY'S WORLD A penitent Frey It looks like Random House isn't quite done paying for James Frey's inability to tell the truth. Following the disclosure in January that Frey had fabricated just about all the significant details in his "memoir" A Million Little Pieces, consumers in several states filed class-action lawsuits claiming they'd been victims of fraud. Now, a source with detailed knowledge of the proceedings tells Radar a deal to make them go away is imminent. "It looks like the case is getting settled," says the source. "A memo of understanding is circulating among the various plaintiffs right now."
Under the proposed plan, readers who bought the book before Random House publicly admitted its falsity will be eligible for a full refund.
