Lena Dunham's Book Sparks Controversy

By: Vasiliki Marapas - Nov 4, 2014
Lena Dunham's book 'Not That Kind of Girl' is a collection of personal essays that explore love, sex, body image, female friendship and professional life. The book is billed as a platform for a young woman to share her life lessons.

Since its release, the book has been subject to a fair amount of backlash. Most notably, allegations that Dunham abused her younger sister are running rampant. The claims, which Dunham contests are bogus, come from actual passages in the book.

As the creator, writer and star of the HBO program 'Girls,' Dunham has sparked her fair share of controversy in the past, beginning with polemic debate over her frequent nude appearances on the show. It only makes sense that her first literary effort be saturated with just as much public deliberation and dispute.
