Little Known Facts

A novel by Christine Sneed

little-known-facts“I grabbed Christine Sneed’s novel, Little Known Facts, on my way out the door this weekend and ate it up.  It’s a great, canny read: wry, observant, inventive in style, rich in character.  Christine Sneed knows her Hollywood, but more than that, she knows her people.”
Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins, and National Book Award Finalist for The Zero

Little Known Facts is juicy enough to appeal to our prurience but smart enough not to make us feel dirty afterward…. Sneed is such a gifted writer… Her depiction of both proximity to celebrity and celebrity itself had me totally convinced.”
Curtis Sittenfeld, New York Times Book Review (cover)

”The gravitational pull of fame in a celebrity-obsessed culture informs this smart, fresh debut novel about a family living in the shadow cast by its larger-than-life patriarch.”
Bonnie Jo Campbell, National Book Award Finalist for American Salvage

“An ensnaring first novel…psychologically exquisite, superbly realized.”
Donna Seaman, Booklist (starred review)

“A culturally vibrant novel brimming with superb dialogue, emotional/psychological clarity, and a bracing humanity. A blazing piece of work.”
Floyd Skloot, author of In the Shadow of Memory

Christine Sneed’s short story “Words that Once Shocked Us” was published in Fifth Wednesday Journal Issue 10 in spring 2012. She will be the Guest Fiction Editor for Issue 13 in fall 2013.
