Lena Dunham shows off the cover of her first book via Instagram.
Not That Kind Of Girl by the Girls creator and star will be out in October.
LENA Dunham, creator and star of cult TV hit Girls, will release her first book on Oct 7, she revealed on Monday, with a cover that harks back to the decade that taste forgot.
Dunham, 27, disclosed the publication date for Not That Kind Of Girl on her @lenadunham Twitter account, linking also to an Instagram photo of herself showing off the book’s cover.
Bloggers immediately spotted a resemblance to the covers of Philip Roth novels, starting with Portnoy’s Complaint in 1969 and, in the 1970s, Our Gang and My Life As A Man, and a reprint of Goodbye, Columbus from 1959.
Random House paid more than US$3.5mil (about RM10.5mil) in 2012 to secure the rights to Dunham’s literary debut, a collection of essays subtitled “A young woman tells you what she’s ‘learned’”, the New York Times reported at the time.
Drawn in part on Dunham’s personal experiences, Girls dwells on the lives and loves of twentysomething women in hipster Brooklyn, New York. Season three is now running on HBO, which has renewed the show for a fourth season. – AFP Relaxnews
