"Little Snowfall" is a short story about a beautiful, young woman named Pixie, who suspects her new neighbour is James Franco. The problem is that her neighbour says his name is Edward and denies he is the famous actor/artist.
Pixie has a monstrous crush on James Franco and is sure that Edward is lying about his true identity. After hearing him say his stay is only temporary, she gives herself two weeks — by Valentine's Day — to make him fall in love with her.
Pixie quickly befriends and seduces the man who denies he’s James Franco. But Pixie has secrets of her own that soon threaten to derail their budding relationship before it even has a chance to begin.
What unfolds is a sweet, comical romance between two illusionists that culminates in a dramatic confrontation at a major art show on Valentine’s Day.
Written as a teaser for Lynn Crosbie’s new novel about Kurt Cobain, Where Did You Sleep Last Night?, "Little Snowfall" is fun and romantic nod to the hugely popular fan fiction genre.
