Readers who felt burned by the fabrications in “A Million Little Pieces” can claim refunds, an agreement called unprecedented by a leading publishing attorney.


CNN:

It’s pay back time for disgraced memoirist James Frey and his publisher, Random House Inc.

Under a tentative legal settlement, readers who said they were defrauded by Frey’s best seller, “A Million Little Pieces,” can claim refunds, an agreement called unprecedented—and understandable—by a leading publishing attorney.

“I can confirm that we have an agreement in principle,” David Drake, a spokesman for the Random House imprint Doubleday, said Thursday. “However, it requires court approval and may take several weeks and even months.”
