New Yorker Publishes Lena Dunham Book Excerpt

lena_dunham--300x300Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s ‘Learned,” the Lena Dunham memoir, doesn’t hit book stores until September 30. Luckily for Dunham fans (and Dunham haters!) The New Yorker has published an excerpt, which Dunham described as “about the therapists who raised me.”

“I am used to appointments: allergist, chiropractor, tutor,” writes Dunham. “All I want is to feel better, and that overrides the fear of something new, something reserved for people who are crazy. Plus, both my parents have therapists, and I feel more like my parents than like anybody else.”

The piece is titled “Difficult Girl.” You can enjoy it or hate it — or secretly enjoy it but publicly hate it — by clicking here.
