The New Yorker TV critic Emily Nussbaum talks with Lena Dunham about the down-and-dirty details of her HBO series 'Girls' as it heads into its second season.
Lena Dunham is the creator and star of the HBO series "Girls," for which she has received four Emmy nominations. In 2010, she won an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay for her feature "Tiny Furniture," which she also starred in and directed. In December, she will appear in Judd Apatow’s "This Is 40." She began contributing to The New Yorker this year.
Emily Nussbaum joined The New Yorker last fall as the magazine’s television critic. Previously, she wrote for New York.
