Need for a Bright Line - Fact or Fiction
Gregg Easterbrook has an opinion about fictitious memoirs in TNR. Apparently a friend of his, Deborah Caulfield, exposed James "Lie" Frey as a fraud several years ago. He says publisher Nan Talese had to know, and she comes off looking pretty bad. On the other hand, Oprah comes off as an honest broker, burned by a bad client.
