Not That Kind of Girl : A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned, Hardback

Not That Kind of Girl : A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned Hardback



Lena Dunham, acclaimed writer-director-star of HBO and Sky Atlantic's 'Girls' and the award-winning movie 'Tiny Furniture', displays her unique powers of observation, wisdom and humour in this exceptional collection of essays. "If I could 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 was worthwhile.

I'm already predicting my future shame at thinking I had anything to offer you, but also my future glory in having stopped you from trying an expensive juice cleanse or thinking that it was your fault when the person you are dating suddenly backs away, intimidated by the clarity of your personal mission here on earth.

No, I am not a sexpert, a psychologist, or a dietician.

I am not a mother of three or the owner of a successful hosiery franchise.

But I am a girl with a keen interest in having it all, and what follows are hopeful dispatches from the frontlines of that struggle."
