Readers of a best-selling book about author James Frey's "redemptive story" of his alleged recovery from drug and alcohol abuse, A Million Little Pieces, are suing him for breach of contract, after stories arose that much of the book is fiction. The publisher, Doubleday, has already offered to refund the money to purchasers. But readers in a class action are claiming consequential damages for the time they wasted reading the book. The book was a selection of the Oprah Winfrey book club.
