The F unny Girl

Elle (Canada) - - Radar -

Lena Dun­ham wrote a cover blurb for Toronto-born Mon­ica Heisey’s new col­lec­tion of short sto­ries, I Can’t Be­lieve It’s Not Bet­ter, and it went like this: “It is the only hu­mor book I ever want to own.” Dun­ham was, of course, spot-on in her as­sess­ment of this 27-year-old es­say­ist’s smart, sen­si­tive way of pok­ing fun while plumb­ing the depths of ev­ery­thing from sex to fe­male friend­ship. Don’t be­lieve Dun­ham or us? We asked Heisey to prep a lit­tle med­i­ta­tion on Cana­dian sum­mer­time that we defy you not to laugh at. Also: You’ll prob­a­bly crave s’mores.
