Description

"The New York Times" bestselling follow-up to the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "A Million Little Pieces"-the heartrending story of a friendship between a newly-sober James and the charismatic, high-living mobster he met in rehab, Leonard."
"A Million Little Pieces" was the first Oprah Book Club pick by a living author in over two years. It instantly became a #1 "New York Times" bestseller, a #1 "USA Today" bestseller, and a #1 "Publishers Weekly" bestseller, with over 1.7 million copies in print.
"My Friend Leonard" picks up right where "Pieces" leaves off. A "New York Times" bestseller in its own right before the Oprah pick, "My Friend Leonard" is James Frey's story of his friendship with Leonard, the larger-than-life mobster who "adopted" James as he left rehab. Leonard, who offers James lucrative-if illegal, mysterious, and slightly dangerous-employment when he needs it. Leonard, of the secret deals, of the surprising passions that belie his violent career choice, of fantastic generosity and ferocious loyalty. Leonard, who has been holding on to some remarkable secrets, and who has invested in their friendship more than James could ever imagine.
"My Friend Leonard" is, at its core, about the responsibility that comes with loving someone and going out on any number of limbs to care for them. And it is a book that proves that one of the most provocative literary voices of his generation is also one of the most emphatically human.
