    She was Lena Dunham with a better fashion sense. Did you see where her mother debunked her story about the identity of her father?

    I'm being harsh. It is sad that she died from a preventable disease and good for her that did what she could with the time she had left to convince people to get examined. My problem is with her literary legacy. She and Camille Paglia were held as late 20th C feminist iconoclasts in certain circles. The truth is they dragged down the discourse. Just not a fan.

    You are being harsh. They're arguably better writers but both Jay McInerney and Brett Easton Ellis are still alive.

    Neither of the writers you mentioned have boobs and a hairdo, so it's less critical (to me, at least) when they position themselves as the voices of their demographic.

    Sorry. I forgot a :) in the original post.

    But while I wish death on nobody, of either gender, they are way more horrible people.

    Bright Lights, Big City is a terrific book. Never read another that so successfully pulls off the second person narrator that he uses.

    I did not know that Wurtzel was fired from the Dallas Morning News, for plagiarism.

    Hopefully wasn't swiping hot takes from Bayless.
