Excerpt From Lena Dunham Memoir, Not That Kind Of Girl

She’s changed our lives in every way and now we’re almost bursting with excitement to read Lena Denham’s highly anticipated memoir: Not That Kind Of Girl. The book’s not due to hit shelves until the end of next month but thankfully we now have sneak peek thanks to an excerpt in The New Yorker

In it Lena’s reveals all about the start of her relationship with Audrey Gelman (her BFF and the inspiration for Marnie on Girls), and it’s everything we hoped it would be and more. Revealing their nicknames for each other, their toilet habits and the kind of guys they made a play for here are just a few phrases to whet your appetite...

We bond immediately, more over what we hate than what we love.

We both hate boys in cargo pants. We’re both sick of kids from Long Island saying they’re from New York. We spend the first few weeks of the school year riding our new red bicycles around town in impractical shoes and too much lipstick, unwilling to let go of the idea that city girls do it differently.

We can barely hold in our peals of laughter when a boy named Zenith arrives at a party in a shirt that says 'P is for Playa.'

We set our sights on senior boys who run ironic literary magazines and we try to avoid using the bathroom next to anybody but each other...

We make up funny names for each other: Sqeedlydoo, Looty, Boober. *screams* (that’s us) 

We. Cannot. Wait. To. Read. More. See the full excerpt on NewYorker.com. As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day Lena teased fans with a short trailer of series 4 of 'Girls' on Instagram. Watch it here.
