A shatteringly good listen, A MILLION LITTLE PIECES is brought to life by Oliver Wyman’s searing performance. Imagine a post-millennial Holden Caulfield with severe drug and alcohol dependence bulling his way through a world he hates and fears. This tersely poetic journal relates author Frey’s experience of hitting bottom somewhere deep below sea level and finding himself a battered 23-year-old funneled to the country’s best rehab facility, desperately hoping he can recover. Raw, graphic, intelligent, visceral, this work should be mandatory classroom fare and nominated for something! A sobering piece, not to be missed. D.J.B.
