Rod Dreher, who is reported to have received close to a million dollars for his forthcoming book cannibalizing the life of his dead sister, begrudges Lena Dunham her 3.7 million advance on hers. No word from Dunham on her feelings about Dreher’s.
There is no doubt that, were it not for the accident of his birth, Dreher would have been William Faulkner or Flannery O’Connor and, for the accident of hers, Lena Dunham would have been nobody. But life can be cruel.
