Poor, poor pitiful me

The New York Observor has an article called "My Book Deal Ruined My Life" in which authors complain about how little they make, how much weight they have gained sitting at their desks, how they don't ever leave the house, how lonely they are, and how, if they write biographies, they grow to loathe their subjects.

I'm guessing a lot of it was tongue-in-cheek. One would hope so when looking at this quote from Anna Holmes "When I have a low-five-figure advance, I call it, like, a small gift, I suppose," said Ms. Holmes. (Full disclosure: a low five-figure advance would be pretty common for most authors.)
