There's a lot going on in Lena Dunham's book proposal, but this is the only revelation you should care about: in 2003, a New York Times style section article covered — in glorious detail — a fancy-dress vegan dinner party that Lena Dunham (who was vegan at the time) threw for her high school girlfriends. Here's what the paper of record reports:
The food sounds great.
But the guests were not that into it.
She made everyone take off their shoes.
The soundtrack was dope.
But they felt conflicted about it, for some reason.
OK, stop reading this post now and go read the whole Times article, because it's beautiful.
