Bright Shiny Morning by James Frey
After the debacle with his memoir A Million Little Pieces, James Frey turns to fiction with Bright Shiny Morning. It's a novel about contemporary Los Angeles and James Frey moves dozens of characters in and out of the story. Some flash across the page and aren't seen again, others continue to appear throughout the novel. It's full of greed, crime, ambition, drugs, humiliation, and redemption. Interspersed throughout the novel are vignettes about this history and culture of Los Angeles. Bright Shiny Morning has received mixed reviews with the USA Today saying, "Bottom line: If, despite the scandal, you loved A Million Little Pieces, you might want to devour Bright Shiny Morning. Like its author, it can be called many things, but never boring. Or timid."
