A Little Trouble with the Facts

Last night in Amsterdam, fellow 'Shopper ('06, I believe) Nina Siegal read from her recently published first novel A Little Trouble with the Facts, which PW calls "chick lit meets Raymond Chandler" and her Dutch publisher calls chick noir (the book is being translated into Dutch). A packed house and many questions after her reading of this glamour/gutter crime novel's Chapter 1, about a former big paper style queen, demoted to obits, who gets sucked into investigating a suicide. Nina came to Holland on a Fullbright to work on her second novel, which features characters from a Rembrandt painting -- and decided to stay.
