One of the most celebrated and controversial authors in America delivers his first novel—a sweeping chronicle of contemporary Los Angeles that is bold, exhilarating, and utterly original.
Dozens of characters pass across 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 bright, ambitious young Mexican-American woman who allows her future to be undone by a moment of searing humiliation; a supremely narcissistic action-movie star whose passion for the unattainable object of his affection nearly destroys him; a couple, both nineteen years old, who flee their suffocating hometown and struggle to survive on the fringes of the great city; and an aging Venice Beach alcoholic whose life is turned upside down when a meth-addled teenage girl shows up half-dead outside the restroom he calls home.
Throughout this strikingly powerful novel there is the relentless drumbeat of the millions of other stories that, taken as a whole, describe a city, a culture, and an age. A dazzling tour de force, Bright Shiny Morning illuminates the joys, horrors, and unexpected fortunes of life and death in Los Angeles.

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.
Such a good book!
I couldn't put the book down. I read every chance I could. I highly recommend this book! I've read all of his novels and I love them.
This has to be my absolute favorite book I have ever read. His writing style keeps you hooked on every line. I was thrilled when I found this book on sale for three dollars at a bargain store and I've read it at least a dozen times and it never gets old.
