Lena Dunham - vom »Time Magazine« zur »coolest person of the year« gewählt Was tun als junge Frau von heute, die lieber Stoffschuhe als Manolos trägt und nicht nach dem einen Prinzen sucht? In ›Not That Kind of Girl‹ erzählt Lena Dunham, Erfinderin der Fernsehserie ›GIRLS‹, hemmungslos persönlich, angstfrei und komisch aus ihrem Leben: von Kondomen in Zimmerpalmen, seltsamen Jungs und von ihrer Angst, keinen Platz in dieser Welt zu finden. Sie schreibt über die Taxifahrer in New York und vom plötzlichen Verliebtsein, über Frauen, die »wie diese Papierdinger behandelt werden, die in Hotelbadezimmern auf den Zahnputzbechern liegen – irgendwie notwendig, aber unendlich verfügbar« – und über Männer, die ungefragt von ihrem Sexleben berichten. Krisengeschüttelt, heiter, absolut im Jetzt: Lena Dunham bringt das Lebensgefühl einer neuen Generation Frauen auf den Punkt.
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Includes two new essays! 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 “The gifted Ms. 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 “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. A fine, subversive book.”—David Sedaris “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 “Witty, illuminating, maddening, bracingly bleak . . . [Dunham] is a genuine artist, and a disturber of the order.”—The Atlantic From the Trade Paperback edition.

Sie hängt an jeder Wand, an jedem Spind, an jedem Schwarzen Brett: die Liste der Mount Washington Highschool. Niemand weiß, wer sie verfasst hat. Aber die Mädchen, die auf der Liste stehen, sind mit einem Schlag berühmt: als Hübscheste in ihrer Jahrgangsstufe. Oder als Hässlichste. Ob sie wollen oder nicht.
“[A] stunning new memoir… thick with contemplation, packed with ideas and images rendered in exacting, evocative prose…. Brave and startlingly beautiful.” —Time Out New York “Truthful, intelligent, and engrossing. This may become a generation's definitive account of books and the city.” —Jeff Sharlet, New York Times bestselling author of The Family A loving and literate, honest and insightful look into the heart of that unsung heroine: the good girl.
