Lena Dunham is one of those girls that you can’t help but cheer for. One of those girls who can say anything and make it sound 100 times cooler, just because she’s saying it. One of those girls who can start a publishing house bidding war with a 66-page book proposal and come out on top with a $3.5 million deal with Random House. WHAT?!
Yeah, the creator/actor/GENIUS behind HBO’s Emmy-nominated series "Girls" is writing a book, and I have no doubt that it’ll fly off the shelves. The non-fiction collection of humorous essays is titled Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned. It sounds like a bit of a parallel to "Girls" with topics on sex, food, and work, but this time, Dunham is offering up witty advice through her own experiences, with chapters described as “an account of some radically and hilariously inappropriate ways I have been treated at work/by professionals because of my age and gender” and “Red lipstick with a sunburn: How to dress for a business meeting and other hard-earned fashion lessons from the size 10 who went to the Met Ball.”
I’ve always wanted to know what it’s like to live inside Lena Dunham’s mind (well, at least since my obsession with "Girls" began), and I’m hoping her book will give me a little bit of insight. I want to be witty and cool too, Lena… teach me your ways!
