Sneak Peek at Lena Dunham's Book

During a panel at the Book Expo America — held at the Jacob Javits center this weekend— Lena Dunham shared a sneak peek from her upcoming book, “Not That Kind of Girl.”

On stage with Alan Cumming, Martin Short, and Cólm Toibín, Dunham admitted that she loosely based her essays on the mother-of-all-memoirs/advice/general commiserator guide, Helen Gurley Brown’s “Having It All.”

Our friends at The Cut have the passage, taken from the book’s introduction:

“Not That Kind of Girl” hits bookstores in September.
