I have little tolerance for the overrated and overhyped. Needless to say I have little tolerance for Lena Dunham, creator of that cloying Obama “First Time” ad and an HBO show I refuse to watch.
So how do I know she’s overrated? Excerpts from her new book, which sold for $3.7 million, confirmed suspicions.
When I got to college I suddenly had the sense that my upbringing hadn’t been very “real.”
Every ice pop I ate, every movie I watched, every poem I wrote was tinged with a fearful loss.
I’ve never kept a diary, [because] if a girl writes in her diary and no one’s there to read it did she really write at all?
Not surprisingly, the press has been mostly favorable, looking the other way at such self-indulgent tripe as:
“People often ask me how I have the bravery to tell my stories.”
You’ve been warned.
