Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham
“If I can take what I’ve learned in this life and make one treacherous relationship or degrading job easier for you, perhaps even prevent you from becoming temporarily vegan, then every misstep of mine will have been worthwhile."
I'm Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham contains stories of wonderful nights with terrible boys, and terrible days with wonderful friends. It's about ambition and the two existential crises Lena Dunham had before the age of twenty. It's about fashion and its many discontents, publicly sharing your body, and having to prove yourself in a meeting full of 50 year old men. It's about health fears that keep her up at night.
Lena predicts her future shame at thinking she has anything to offer you with this book, but also her future glory in having stopped you from trying an expensive juice cleanse or having the kind of sexual encounter where you keep your sneakers on.
She is not a sexpert, a psychologist or a registered dietician. And she is not a married mother of three or the owner of a successful hosiery franchise. But he is a girl with a keen interest in self-actualization, and she is sending hopeful dispatches from the frontlines of that struggle. ISBN 978-0-8129-8517-7. Paperback.
