    Lena Dunham

    Top Ten Books

    Golden Globe-winner Lena Dunham is best known for her work as screenwriter, director, producer and actor on HBO’s Girls, for which she also won the 2013 DGA Award for Outstanding Directing – Comedy Series (the first woman to do so). Lately she has been adding a new role to her resume, as a campaigner of women's rights (including an affiliation with Planned Parenthood). Beyond her achievements politically and in film/TV, she’s also garnered solid attention as the author of her own book, Not That Kind of Girl, and for her newsletter, Lenny. When she’s not at her HBO day job, “flashing [her] tits on TV,” (in her words) she’s becoming a voice of her generation, encouraging her peers and contemporaries to speak up along the way. Below are Lena Dunham’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually. See the full list...
