‘Not That Kind of Girl’ – Lena Dunham

Lausanne, August 2015


Lena Dunham’s collection of essays/bio through which she recounts her experiences of relationships, work and body image in a non-linear way.


I did enjoy reading this – I’d avoided it as I don’t trust lena Dunham (haha!) but am glad I read it. Whilst insightful, there was an honest portrayal of an attention seeking neurotic needing validation – which I relate to! The end for me bottomed out a bit, but enjoyable.


‘I had recently coloured my hair and brought a satin tube top, a transition I considered to be evidence of irreversible maturity.’

From ‘Thoughts on Death and Dying’
