LitAnalysis: Reading Fiction with Freud
Join Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center for a discussion of Chris Cleave's Little Bee
LitAnalysis Reading Fiction with Freud
A Program in Partnership with the Main Carnegie Library in Oakland
Saturday, April 28 2-3 pm

Critical Praise for Little Bee:
"Little Bee will blow you away. In restrained, diamond-hard prose, Cleave alternates between these two characters' points of view as he pulls the threads of their darkbut often funnystory tight. What unfolds between them is both surprising and inevitable, thoroughly satisfying if also heart-rending." The Washington Post
"[an] immensely readable and moving second novel. Cleave uses his emotionally charged narrative to challenge his readers' conceptions of civility, of ethical choiceThe character and voice of Little Bee reveal Cleave at his finest. An affecting story of human triumph." The New York Times Book Review
"One of the most vividly memorable and provocative characters in recent contemporary fiction. In Chris Cleave's heartwarming and heartbreaking Little Bee The tone veers quickly between humor and horror, a very dark, biting humor to be sure, but usually skating along a thin blade of irony, the kind to make you laugh with a little grimaceThe shift in perspective when we finally learn of Little Bee's experience that fateful day on the beach is viscerally stunning and would be nearly impossible to bear had we not known of Little Bee's strength and resilience. Cleave paces the story beautifully, lacing it with wit, compassion, and, even at the darkest moments, a searing ray of hope."The Boston Globe
"Every now and then, you come across a character in a book whose personality is so salient and whose story carries such devastating emotional force it's as if she becomes a fixed part of your consciousness. So it is with the charmingly named title character in Chris Cleave's brilliant and unforgettable Little Bee sequined with lustrous turns of phrase, spanning two continents and driven by real-life global concerns What elevates this novel even further is Cleave's forceful call for all of us, the floating masses of a globalized, socially isolating modern world, to look after one other."The Seattle Times
