The result is a limited-edition, 80-page book published by McSweeney’s The Believer.

Lena Dunham interviewed Mindy Kaling for RookieMag.com’s second book, Rookie Yearbook 2. “More than half the questions I am asked are about the politics of the way I look,” Mindy Kaling said. “What it feels like to be not skinny/dark-skinned/a minority/not conventionally pretty/female/etc. It’s not very interesting to me, but I know it’s interesting… READ MORE »

Lena Dunham is not psyched about the “Girls” parody porn, “This Ain’t Girls XXX,” tweeting “‘Girls’ is, at its core, a feminist action while Hustler is a company that markets and monetizes a male’s idea of female sexuality.
