We were pleased to wake up this morning to an essay taken from Lena Dunham’s much-anticipated book in the latest issue of The New Yorker.
Due for release on September 30, Not That Kind of Girl is being touted as a “hilarious, poignant, and extremely frank collection of personal essays…for readers of Nora Ephron, Tina Fey, and David Sedaris.”
The extract in The New Yorker focuses on Dunham’s childhood phobias and growing up on therapists’ chaise lounges. Just like her TV series, Girls, the extract is in Dunham’s signature candid and acerbic style.
A few days ago, the newly platinum-blonde Dunham released a 30-second teaser for the fourth season of Girls (watch below). We can’t wait to get our hands on the book or for the new season to begin (due on screens in winter 2015).
