"From the New York Times bestselling author of A Million Little Pieces and Bright Shiny Morning comes Katerina, James Frey's highly anticipated new novel set in 1992 Paris and contemporary Los Angeles. A kiss, a touch. A smile and a beating heart. Love and sex and dreams, art and drugs and the madness of youth. Betrayal and heartbreak, regret and pain, the melancholy of age. Katerina, the explosive new novel by America's most controversial writer, is a sweeping love story alternating between 1992 Paris and Los Angeles in 2018. At its center are a young writer and a young model on the verge of fame, both reckless, impulsive, addicted, and deeply in love. Twenty-five years later, the writer is rich, famous, and numb, and he wants to drive his car into a tree, when he receives an anonymous message that draws him back to the life, and possibly the love, he abandoned years prior. Written in the same percussive, propulsive, dazzling, breathtaking style as A Million Little Pieces, Katerina echoes and complements that most controversial of memoirs, and plays with the same issues of fiction and reality that created, nearly destroyed, and then recreated James Frey in the American imagination"-- Provided by publisher.

Although not a fan of books written in 1st person, this one grabbed me at the beginning. You feel the pain and joy of the writer in his quest for true love. Also, I love Paris, even though I've never been there. This book explores the depths of love, betrayal, happiness and sadness. Readers will feel the writer's battle with addictions to love and alcohol and empathize with his search for, and escape from pure love. The writing style is truly unique and refreshing! A great read!

How does a book like this even get published?! Absolute garbage! So poorly written it's not worth the paper it's printed on and an insult to hardworking writers everywhere. Wow. Don't waste your time with this one.
