Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham
(Random House, 2014, 288 pages)
As soon as I heard that Dunham had a book coming out I knew I was going to read it. This book is a collection of essays broken up into five different sections: Love & Sex, Body, Friendship, Work, and Big Picture. True to herself, Dunham doesn’t hold back in her essays. She’s very comfortable putting things out there and as a result it’s easy to read her work and realize not only is she smart, quirky, and funny, but that you would most likely really enjoy being friends with her… though you might only be able to handle so much at a time 😉
This is a book about her life experiences so far, and it’s pretty impressive to consider what she’s accomplished and what she still has in front of her. If you’re a fan of hers or just intrigued by her I’d recommend picking this up.
