""If I could take what I've learned and make one menial job easier for you, or prevent you from having the kind of sex where you feel you must keep your sneakers on in case you want to run away during the act, then every misstep of mine was worthwhile. I'm already predicting my future shame at thinking I had anything to offer you, but also my future glory in having stopped you from trying an expensive juice cleanse or thinking that it was your fault when the person you are dating suddenly backs away, intimidated by the clarity of your personal mission here on earth. No, I am not a sexpert, a psychologist or a dietician. I am not a mother of three or the owner of a successful hosiery franchise. But I am a girl with a keen interest in having it all, and what follows are hopeful dispatches from the frontlines of that struggle.""-- Provided by publisher.

Disappointing collection of stories...I found it impossible to get through the lengthy book.

I like how her mind works. Liked this a lot. She bounces between different times in her life, which I see could be a bit confusing for some. Her essays are very amusing. If you like her show Girls, you will enjoy this too.

4 out of 5 stars :)

VERY DULL AND BORING BIO OF LENA DUNHAM. LISTENED TO TWO C.D'S AND IT DID NOT GET ANY BETTER WISH I COULD REMEMBER THE AWARD SHE RECEIVED ON NATIONAL T.V. MAY HAVE BEEN FOR WRITING "GIRLS" WHICH I DON'T SUBSCRIBE TO PREMIUM CHANNELS. NO WAY WAS I GOING TO LISTEN TO 5 DISC'S OF THIS FLUFF.

In this very disjointed book Lena skips back and forth among childhood, teen years, college and adulthood, sometimes barely taking a breath before switching gears. I cannot say that I enjoyed it,
