WASHINGTON, United States – Lena Dunham, creator and star of cult TV hit “Girls,” will release her first book October 7, she revealed 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,” “My Life as a Man” and a reprint of “Goodbye, Columbus” from 1959.

Random House paid more than $3.5 million 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. Season three is now running on HBO, which has renewed the show for a fourth season. – Rappler.com
