Book By Harvard Plagiarist Is Recalled By Publisher

Good. Her movie deal is also in jeopardy. It's unclear whether Little, Brown will sue to get their two book advance back, or whether they still want the second book. Presumably the plans to reissue the book with all the plagiarized parts taken out is over. Now if only people would stop buying the books by James Frey.

I hear the second book is set around the time of the Civil War and features a wild young belle named Ruby and a cad named Brett. One of the chapters ends with Ruby saying "I'll never go thirsty again!" At the end, Brett says, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a rat's ass." Great stuff!

Good lord, you should be writing humor as well as nonfiction pieces. Still laughing.
