Only about 1,700 people asked to be reimbursed for buying James Frey’s largely fabricated memoir, A Million Little Pieces, a book that earned the author more than $4 million US, a lawyer said recently as a judge approved a final settlement with disgruntled readers.





Larry D. Drury, a Chicago lawyer for readers who brought lawsuits across the United States, had urged U.S. District Judge Richard J. Holwell to approve the deal, which offered a refund to anyone who bought the book before Frey’s falsehoods were acknowledged.





The Manhattan jurist said he would bestow final approval on the settlement because it was “most fair, adequate and reasonable.”





Only 1,729 readers came forward to benefit from the settlement, Drury said.
