off the soap box, Oprah
Originally, I was actually siding with Oprah. I thought what a "con." Then I thought, isn't a memoir an account of the personal experiences of the author. Well damn then, maybe this is all he can recall- since he was dabbling in the drugs. We all like a little hollywood in our books. Since hearing parts of various interviews I think we should just leave it alone. No one asked Oprah to endorse the book. I have to say books are for personal enjoyment and entertainment. I don't get the feeling that this book was meant to be a history book. More like a personal journey through this mans addictions. I think Oprah spoke before she thought it through. Now she wants to cover her own ars. So let's give kudos to Mr. Frey for recovering.
I am now temporarily stepping down from my soap box.
