“Lindy has a smart and original take on everything she writes about, whether it’s movies, comedy, the arts, or the use of the word ‘dude.’ And her work stands out in a sea of cultural commentary,” Nelson said in a statement. She’s also FUN TO READ and can make a defense of writing in all caps sound urgent and funny. She’s going to be GREAT AT GQ!”
