You live, you learn. It’s one of life’s simplest truths--and the premise of Lena Dunham’s new megahit memoir, Not That Kind Of Girl.

The collection of personal essays is sweeping the New York Times bestseller-list and garnering praise from the likes of Judy Blume and David Sedaris.

What makes it such a knockout, you ask? It’s surprisingly profound and really damn funny.

From Dunham’s first job to her first (what she thought was) love, you relive these moments right alongside her. She tells her stories with such candor, reminding you that life isn’t perfect--nor should it be--and that’s totally fine. (Breathes sigh of relief.)
