Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham
"well written, great language, funny and chock-full of mistakes i made in my 20s as well. no reason to judge lena so harshly--this book is entertaining and, above all, a satire of helen gurley brown's book. love it."

Gottland by Mariusz Szczygieł
"Iritující, přeceněná, špatná kniha. Hojnost věcných chyb, nepřesností, zavádějících, zplošťujících a vágních formulací; k tomu lyrizující až afektovaný styl jak z nejhorších socrealistických črt (že by Dan Hrubý měl ten svůj bizarní způsob psaní "..." Read more of this review »

Even without considering the limitations (that it is incomplete, that he did not work with the editor on the final version), I think it's great. Some of the vignettes are mind-searingly great, some are ... less so. But collectively it is amazing.

“There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.”
