I’m never unamused that conversations of note, of deep engagement and unfolding insight occur at a cafe. And, it is no different, with Lena Dunham who expounds on her life as a character and a caricature from her HBO show, ‘Girls’ to her upcoming book, ‘Not That Kind of Girl’ and expels thoughts on the idea of being a real girl with real issues living on her own and very real terms.
