The fallout continues


James Frey, who has become the equivalent of literary poison, was dropped by his publisher today. His two-book deal with Riverhead is gone, and deservedly so. I don't agree with what he did but what I don't understand is this. Despite the fact "he" doesn't really exist, JT LeRoy is now listed as a contributing editor at Blackbook. Right next to Chuck Palahniuk, who is, in fact, a real person.

I guess it's okay to lie, as long as it's not to Oprah.

It's alright to quote me as long as you keep in mind that everything I say is utter rubbish.
