A lot of people think I’m joking, when I tell them that. I’m not joking. There are a significant number of pages given to Lucy’s vagina problem. As someone on Twitter pointed out, “this is sort of like if a fifth of The Great Gatsby was about how one of the party guests had one leg that was shorter than the other.”

(She is in the movie, albeit briefly; she’s the bridesmaid Sonny is seen having sex with during his sister’s wedding; in the book she’s devastated after his death because she’s convinced he is the only man in the world with a penis large enough for her terrible, enormous vagina.)
