it was amazing

I just have to give this 5 stars. I love love love loooove Lena Dunham! I enjoy and appreciate her humor, honesty and brilliance. This book was a comfort read for me, so I tried to stretch out my reading in order to indulge a little every day.
My fave stories were: 'Girls & Jerks' ; 'Barry' - I'm not sure if there is actually a rape scene in this story...I think its open to various interpretations. Either way, some descriptions from this story were horrific :( ; 'Grace' ; 'Then I Vomited'. All the stories were enjoyable! I will def read this again...It's a great book to read when you feel exhausted from a long day or if you feel down - her humor and awkward stories alone will lift your spirits and having you laugh out loud!
If you watch her show, 'Girls' on HBO, you will have an idea on her style of humor and the random stuff she likes to discuss (nudity, eating habits, sex, relationships, family, being a creative individual, her life experiences in general). The book is written well, but her style may take a bit of getting used to. People often criticize Dunham for not including more people of color to her show, and even in her book. But if her reality involves minimal people of color, what's the problem? She's just showcasing her truth and people need to respect that. I love you Lena! (Lena is my mom's name too hahaa).
