Advance praise for "Not That Kind of Girl""
"
"It's not Lena Dunham's candor that makes me gasp. Rather, it's her writing--which is full of surprises where you least expect them. This is a fine, subversive book."--David Sedaris

"Always funny, sometimes wrenching, these essays are a testament to the creative wonder that is Lena Dunham."--Judy Blume

"Dunham's writing is just as smart, honest, sophisticated, dangerous, and charming as her work on "Girls". Its essential quality is a kind of joyful super-awareness: of herself, the world, the human. Reading her makes you glad to be in the world, and glad that she's in it with you."--George Saunders

"Very few women have become famous for being who they actually are, nuanced and imperfect. When honesty happens, it's usually couched in self-ridicule or self-help. Dunham doesn't apologize like that--she simply tells her story as if it might be interesting. The result is shocking and radical because it is utterly familiar." Not That Kind of Girl" is hilarious, artful, and staggeringly intimate; I read it shivering with recognition."--Miranda July

"This book should be required reading for anyone who thinks they understand the experience of being a young woman in our culture. I thought I knew the author rather well, and I found many (not altogether welcome) surprises."--Carroll Dunham

"The gifted [Lena] Dunham not only writes with observant precision, but also brings a measure of perspective, nostalgia and an older person's sort of wisdom to her portrait of her (not all that much) younger self and her world. . . . As acute and heartfelt as it is funny."--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"

"Witty, illuminating, maddening, bracingly bleak . . . [Dunham] is a genuine artist, and a disturber of the order."--"The Atlantic"
"As [Lena] Dunham proves beyond a shadow of a doubt in" Not That Kind of Girl, " she's not remotely at risk of offering up the same old sentimental tales we've read dozens of times. Dunham's outer and inner worlds are so eccentric and distinct that every anecdote, every observation, every mundane moment of self-doubt actually feels valuable and revelatory."--"The Los Angeles Review of Books"
"We are forever in search of someone who will speak not only to us but for us. . . . "Not That Kind of Girl "is from "that" kind of girl: gutsy, audacious, willing to stand up and shout. And that is why Dunham is not only a voice who deserves to be heard but also one who will inspire other important voices to tell their stories too."--Roxane Gay, "Time"
"I'm surprised by how successful this was. I couldn't finish it."--Laurie Simmons
"Always funny, sometimes wrenching, these essays are a testament to the creative wonder that is Lena Dunham."--Judy Blume
"An offbeat and soulful declaration that Ms. Dunham can deliver on nearly any platform she chooses."--Dwight Garner, "The New York Times"

"Dunham's writing is just as smart, honest, sophisticated, dangerous, luminous, and charming as her work on "Girls." Reading her makes you glad to be in the world, and glad that she's in it with you."--George Saunders
" "
"A lovely, touching, surprisingly sentimental portrait of a woman who, despite repeatedly baring her body and soul to audiences, remains a bit of an enigma: a young woman who sets the agenda, defies classification and seems utterly at home in her own skin."--"Chicago Tribune"
" "
"A lot of us fear we don't measure up beautywise and that we endure too much crummy treatment from men. On these topics, Dunham is funny, wise, and, yes, brave. . . . Among Dunham's gifts to womankind is her frontline example that some asshole may call you undesirable or worse, and it won't kill you. Your version matters more."--"Elle"
" "
"["Not That Kind of Girl" is] witty and wise and rife with the kind of pacing and comedic flourishes that characterize early Woody Allen books. . . . Dunham is an extraordinary talent, and her vision . . . is stunningly original."--Meghan Daum, "The New York Times Magazine"
" "
"There's a lot of power in retelling your mistakes so people can see what's funny about them--and so that you are in control. Dunham knows about this power, and she has harnessed it."--"The Washington Post"
" "
"Dunham's book is one of those rare examples when something hyped deserves its buzz. Those of us familiar with her wit and weirdness on HBO's "Girls" will experience it in spades in these essays. . . . There are hilarious moments here--I cracked up on a crowded subway reading an essay about her childhood--and disturbing ones, too. But it's always heartfelt and very real."--"New York Post"
" "
"We are comforted, we are charmed, we leave more empowered than we came."--NPR
"Touching, at times profound, and deeply funny . . . Dunham is expert at combining despair and humor."--"Publishers Weekly "(starred review)
"Most of us live our lives desperately trying to conceal the anguishing gap between our polished, aspirational, representational selves and our real, human, deeply flawed selves. Dunham lives hers "in" that gap, welcomes the rest of the world into it with boundless openheartedness, and writes about it with the kind of profound self-awareness and self-compassion that invite us to inhabit our own gaps and maybe even embrace them a little bit more, anguish over them a little bit less."--Maria Popova, "Brain Pickings"
" "
"Reading this book is a pleasure. . . . [These""essays] exude brilliance and insight well beyond Dunham's twenty-eight years."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer"

Reseña del editor:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY MICHIKO KAKUTANI, THE NEW YORK TIMES
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BUZZFEED, THE GLOBE AND MAIL, AND LIBRARY JOURNAL
For readers of Nora Ephron, Tina Fey, and David Sedaris, this hilarious, wise, and fiercely candid collection of personal essays establishes Lena Dunham the acclaimed creator, producer, and star of HBO s Girls 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 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 ( No floodgate had been opened, no vault of true womanhood unlocked ); 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 eighty and past caring, able to reflect honestly on the sexism and condescension she has encountered in Hollywood, where women are treated like the paper thingies that protect glasses in hotel bathrooms necessary but infinitely disposable.
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.
Praise for Not That Kind of Girl
