Foregrounding the uncertainties

Just a brief thought on the James Frey controversy: it would be interesting to explore this in a class by reading A Million Little Pieces and another that approaches the uncertain or the subjective aspects of memory differently, like Nola or Girl, Interrupted. The latter openly discusses the differences between the "facts" as presented on documents from the institution and the doctors and as the writer remembers them.
