Description - A Million Little Lies by Pablo Fenjves
"A Million Little Lies" tells the story of Jimmy Fraud, a wealthy young man who is given every opportunity to Make Something of His Life, but who only manages to drink and dance himself into Sleepy Hollow, the famous (if discreet) rehab facility in Upstate New York. Jimmy meets all sorts of fascinating characters at Sleepy Hollow, one more unbelievable and amazing than the next, and after many challenges he is accepted into the facility's best and coolest clique. In the course of his often harrowing adventure, which involves a great deal of pain, much posturing, and all sorts of adolescent fantasies about what it really means To Be A Man, Jimmy falls in love with a woman he knows his parents will never approve it. The love affair ends tragically, of course, and, like many other parts of Jimmy's story, stretches credulity to the breaking point, but the experience, which involves dirty sex, heinous betrayal, and lots of crying, eventually leads to Redemption and Healing.

Author Biography - Pablo Fenjves
At the age of 23, James Pinocchio wakes up in the back of a New York taxi with a combination lock piercing his left ear and no idea how it got there, or what the combination is. The following day, his wealthy parents decide they've had enough, and they send him off to Sleepy Hollow, the famous rehab facility in Upstate New York. While there, Mr. Pinocchio meets all sorts of Fascinating Characters, one more Unbelievable and Amazing than the next, and falls in love with a trashy woman who ultimately betrays him. The love affair ends tragically, of course, and, like many parts of Mr. Pinocchio's story, stretches credibility to the breaking point, but the experience-which involves a great deal of pain, some dirty sex, and endless amounts of girlish crying-eventually leads to Redemption and Healing. But not for him.
