The F unny Girl
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.
