Not that Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s  Learned

Lena Dunham

From the acclaimed creator, producer and star of HBO’s Girls comes a hilarious, wise and fiercely candid collection of personal essays that establishes Lena Dunham as one of the most original young talents writing today.


In Not That Kind of Girl, Dunham illuminates the experiences that are part of making one’s way in the world: falling in love, feeling alone, being ten pounds overweight despite eating only health food, having to prove yourself to a room full of men twice your age, finding true love, and most of all, having the guts to believe that your story is one that deserves to be told.

Exuberant, moving and keenly observed, Not That Kind of Girl is a series of dispatches from the frontlines of the struggle that is growing up. ‘I’m already predicting my future shame at thinking I had anything to offer you,’ Dunham writes. ‘But if I can take what I’ve learned and make one menial job easier for you, or prevent you from having the kind of sex where you feel you must keep your sneakers on in case you want to run away during the act, then every misstep of mine will have been worthwhile.’
