You have never had the Misfortune Of The Heartbreak That of the heartbreak that with this kind of love count yourself blessed This ote was on page 10 and honestly is the realest raw and beautiful thing I have ever read in a book in my life That being said I think this book needs to be read after A Million Little Pieces Everyone knows that book It caused chaos and controversy when it came out that the memoir James Frey wrote was not in fact a memoir and was in fact fiction How some people feel like that lessens the meaning and impact
of the book i have no idea but the book I have no idea but still consider that one of the best books of all time and will always be a top best books of all time and will always be a top This book is weird in the sense that it s clearly a work of fiction but the characters life mirrors that of Freys It follows a man in 199293 who leaves his whole life to move to Paris and write and he experiences that kind of love mentioned above We also get his 2017 life in which he is a successful authorscreenwriter and happily married with kids His 2017 self is mirrored on Frey He talks about the scandal of AMLP he discusses why he lied his books to follow and the way society viewed him after Which makes you realized there are likely some aspects of Frey in the 199293 portion the alcoholism and the path to rehab I fully believe that this is a work of fiction and Jay is a fictional character but I think if you know anything about Frey and his life you would know he Sheik Defense (Desert Justice used himself as inspiration in Katerina I find Freys writing beautiful and poetic he is sonapologetic about his style and I love it but I can fully nderstand it s not everyones style I just love it and I truly find his books cathartic to readLastly I think that James Frey has been judged way too harshly in his life People have let his mistakes become his image and I don t think that s fair I think everyone should give AMLP a shot if only to get to this book I loved this book and it physically hurts me that I had to wait 10 years for it Here s to hoping I don t have to wait 10 for another With a riveting emotional intensity Katerina is another literary achievement for the controversial bestselling author James Frey Katerina aka model girl was a stunning flaming haired Scandinavian beauty when she encountered Jay aka writer boy a troubled reckless alcoholic while temporarily working and living in Paris 1992 1993 Katerina was clearly impressed with Jay when the couple met but refused to leave her contact information adding elements of mystery intrigue and sizzling romance to the storyline continuing to the novel s heartfelt conclusion It is impossible to not write about Frey s estionable memoir A Million Little Pieces 2005 parts of which Frey admitted was fabricated after the book was selected by Oprah Winfrey s Book Club Since its publication the book has been the popular subject matter of endless commentary and essay This never changes the fact that Frey is a highly skilled and gifted writer that describes addiction in a rarely read seldom seen manner that connects readers to the intense overpowering suffering and hell that defines and illustrates the addictive personality and character In the novel Katerina Jay was very sick man that woke p in public places after alcoholic black out binges The cultural scenic beauty of living in Paris held little interest for him and the shop owners he freuented to buy coffee and food viewed him with contempt and scorn Jay recognized his black heart that sometimes sang or had stars in it yet couldn t escape the wreckage of nfixable paths the sadness sorrow regret and guilt that seemed to haunt his every move Inspired by literature art and his grand affair with the alluring Katerina Jay was offered another chance to move forward in a positive directionIn 2017 Jay reflected on that period of his life when he lived in Paris and loved Katerina who contacted him online after decades had passed since they last spoke Jay became the lucky bestselling wealthy author with a wife and family knowing full well his life could have taken a turn for the worst at any time Considering the parts of the storyline where random women eagerly have sexual encounters with Jay especially in filthy bathrooms or against cars in parking lots these scenarios seemed based on wishful thinking or fantasy rather than reality and some of Frey s professional literary critics haven t hesitated to low star the book Frey seems to be an author that is either loved or loathed As a novel Katerina is presented in the best forms of autobiographical fictional writing Regardless of the controversy surrounding James Frey s 1 best seller A Million Little Pieces I loved the story It gripped my heartstrings like few othersFifteen years later Frey gives s.
