`It's not Lena Dunham's candour 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 apologise 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 `Frank, fearless and funny ... made me want to cry out with thanks that a talented, intelligent woman has said and done worse things than I have and is repeating them without a scrap of shame ... `Not That Kind of Girl' is funny, empowering and as good a millennial guide for navigating and laughing at your foggy adolescence and murky twenties as there can be. I only wish it had been around earlier' Sunday Times `I love Lena's book ... more shocking than I was expecting, sadder and more beautiful - anyway; within a few pages ... I'm charmed, anxious, furious and totally committed' Nina Stibbe, Observer `Very funny ... and imbues the gloom with hope ... "Having it all" need not mean hitting narrow markers of success - the perfect job/man/body - but instead being able to own your experiences: the good, the bad, the ugly. All of it' Independent `Dunham's first book is seldom less than very funny' Iona McLaren, Sunday Telegraph
