My Friend Leonard is a memoir covering the events of about 5 years in the life of James Frey. It is a follow up to the best seller A Million Little Pieces. Leonard is a mentor and a father figure to James and a known criminal. Yet, he exposes James to classic paintings and gives him advice like to live honorably and with dignity.

One of my favorite parts in the book is where James celebrates his promotion from a cleaning person to a doorman in a bar by buying and eating cake. Frey also writes very honestly about the anixety and fear he felt working for Leonard as a transporter picking up large amounts of money and delivering it to different places.

My Friend Leonard really moved me in some parts like when James learns that his girlfriend Lilly has committed suicide. The pain from that personal loss prevented James from having successful close relationships with women for a long time. Another event in this book that really touched me in this book is where James has to put his much loved pit bull dog to sleep. I could relate to the pain he felt, because I had to the same thing to my dog.

The most important thing to remember after reading a book like My Friend Leonard is to live every day like it is your last, because you never know how much time left you have to live. My Friend Leonard is an unique book about the things our friends can teach us about life, It is also about how to deal with personal loss in our lives. I really enjoyed it.
