Publisher Description

#1 National Bestseller

“A sprawling, ambitious novel about Los Angeles, written with all the broad-stroke energy that was so irresistible to readers in A Million Little Pieces. By turns satirical, tense, and surprisingly touching, it is a portrait of a city onto which so many millions have projected so many dreams. . . . Compelling, cinematic. . . . It achieves the very essence of Los Angeles’s fractured, unpredictable, loopy nature.”  — Vanity Fair

“A captivating urban kaleidoscope. . . . James Frey got another chance. Look what he did with it. He stepped up to the plate and hit one out of the park. . . . He became a furiously good storyteller.” —Janet Maslin, New York Times

One of the most celebrated and controversial authors in America delivers an extraordinary novel—a sweeping chronicle of contemporary Los Angeles that is bold, exhilarating, and utterly original. Dozens of characters pass through the reader's sight lines—some never to be seen again—but James Frey lingers on a handful of LA's lost souls and captures the dramatic narrative of their lives. A dazzling tour de force, Bright Shiny Morning illuminates the joys, horrors, and unexpected fortunes of life and death in Los Angeles.

Interesting and very different

Enjoyed the books. I connected with most of the characters. Wish that I knew what happened with some of the characters, like Doug's mom....but a great book allows you room for your imagination to create it's own endings.

Bright shiny morning

I'm a big fan of James Frey, in spite of the Oprah debacle, but I wanted more closure at the end if this story.

Got me reading

Before I read this book I had only read a few books since 5th grade and all were when I was in prison. I was 27 when read this book so you can say I wasn't a big reader. This book had me stuck and once I started reading I never put the book down. After I read this book I became addicted to reading. Because this book was so good I continued reading. If my lady would have handed me another book to read instead of this one I would probably still see no reason or point to reading books. I have yet to find a book I've enjoyed as much as this one. This is my all time favorite so far. If you haven't read it you're missing out Hurry up and get through it.
