Author James Frey sums up his internship at Gawker.com

James Frey, author of a ‘Million Little Pieces’ and ‘Bright Shiny Morning,’ has finished his brief internship at Gawker.com: you can watch the last day part of the day video here, which mainly seems to consist of doughnut shots. The people ‘weren’t as awful’ as he thought they would be, he had a great time – especially doing errands – and he gave back change after doing the Starbucks run.
