About the Book

Lena Dunham, creator of the critically acclaimed HBO series Girls, and author of the internationally bestseller Not That Kind of Girl, returns with a dazzling collection of short stories.

'I shrug, a shrug that simultaneously says You know nothing and Please rescue me.'

Lena Dunham follows up her bestselling memoir Not That Kind of Girl with Best & Always, a dazzling collection of clear-eyed, observant, rueful, witty and heartbreaking stories.

Praise for Not That Kind of Girl:

'The gifted Ms. Dunham not only writes with observant precision, but also brings a measure of perspective, nostalgia and an older person's sort of wisdom to her portrait of her (not all that much) younger self and her world. . . . As acute and heartfelt as it is funny.' Michiko Kakutani The New York Times

'It's not Lena Dunham's candor that makes me gasp. Rather, it's her writing, which is full of surprises where you least expect them. A fine, subversive book.' David Sedaris

'Witty, illuminating, maddening, bracingly bleak . . . [Dunham] is a genuine artist, and a disturber of the order.' The Atlantic
