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

AUTHOR: Lena Dunham

PUBLISHER: Random House

PRICE: $20

GENRE: Biographies & Memoirs

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 10 pounds overweight despite eating only health food, having to prove yourself in 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.

“Take My Virginity (No Really, Take It)” is the account of Dunham’s first time, and how her expectations of sex didn’t quite live up to the actual event; “Girls & Jerks” explores her former attraction to less-than-nice guys - guys who had perfected the “dynamic of disrespect” she found so intriguing; “Is This Even Real?” is a meditation on her lifelong obsession with death and dying - what she calls her “genetically predestined morbidity.” And in “I Didn’t F*** Them, but They Yelled at Me,” she imagines the tell-all she will write when she is 80 and past caring, able to reflect honestly on the sexism she has encountered in Hollywood, where women are “treated like the paper thingies that protect glasses in hotel bathrooms - necessary but infinitely disposable.”
