Gospel? Truth?

One funny thing about Nan Talese’s statement’s about Oprah’s roasting of James Frey a year ago (whom she’s evidently still mad at, by the way), over his partially-made-up memoir. Nan actually says, “When someone starts out and says, `I have been an alcoholic. I have
lied. I have cheated.’ … You do not think this is going to be the New
Testament.” But given what we know about the gospels, Frey’s memoir may have more truth in it. Considerably more.
