WASHINGTON—According to a report published Monday by the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans have never heard of Fifty Shades Of Grey. “About 95 percent of respondents said they had never heard of Fifty Shades of Grey,” said lead author Emily Hill, adding that most residents of the country had never heard of the bestselling erotic novel before reading it. “Of the people who had read it, nearly half had heard of it, and nearly half have never heard of it at all.” Hill went on to say that, among those who had never heard of Fifty Shades of Grey, more than 90 percent had not met the author.
