Did James Frey seem oddly removed in the first segment of his Oprah reunion show yesterday? (See highlights on The Daily Beast site).

We’ll see which James Frey shows up for the second part of the interview today.

As a result of the show, A Million Little Pieces moved up the Amazon sales rankings to #61, from #3,530.
