‘The Believer’ Captures a Conversation Between Judy Blume & Lena Dunham

believeThe Believer, a McSweeney’s publication, has created a mini-book featuring a conversation between legendary children’s author Judy Blume and Girls actress Lena Dunham.

This interview book will be given as a gift to new subscribers. The magazine only plans to distribute 2,000 copies. According to the McSweeney’s website, a natural friendship bloomed between the two ladies from this interview.

Here’s more about the book: “What does surprise, though, in this 80-page book chronicling the pair’s first meeting and a conversation that touches on writing, celebrity, sex, censorship, and favorite breakfasts, is just how naturally the two get along. The generation gap doesn’t stand a chance—perhaps because Dunham and Blume have reading in common.” (via The Frisky)
