Not That Kind of Girl
288 pages; Random House

The star of HBO's Girls reveals everything from her worst pickup lines (e.g.,"You should come over. My dad is super funny.") to her confusion over having been date-raped by a fellow college student. In the process, she's created a handbook for women of all ages about love, sex and realizing your own power (even if the men around you do not). As George Saunders put it in his review for O, The Oprah Magazine, the book's "essential quality is a kind of joyful superawareness: of herself, the world, the human. Reading her makes you glad to be in the world, and glad that she's in it with you."
