Today, I pre-ordered a signed copy of Lena Dunham’s upcoming book, Not That Kind of Girl. I am so stinkin’ excited about it, and the fact that it’s SIGNED BY ONE OF MY IDOLS is just insane. I can’t wait to read it. I’m a huge fan of Lena. I saw Tiny Furniture in 2010 and fell in love with her and how full of moxie she is. She’s only 28 and she’s written and directed a feature film that was accepted into the Criterion Collection, written and directed a hugely successful (and excellent) show for HBO, and now she’s written a book that she was paid $3.7 million dollars for. She’s successful, she’s funny, she’s relatable, and she’s a hilarious role model for twenty-somethings everywhere. Her book will be a source of inspiration and a signal that we can have it all. Women in positions of power and success are starting to write more memoirs, and I want to take this time to discuss some memoirs and other non-fiction inspirational books by women that I love, and some that I’m excited to read.
