This August, my chapter “Capitalizing on Cool: The Music that Makes Girls” arrived via the new book HBO’s Girls The Awkward Politics of Gender, Race, and Privilege. The collection, edited by Elwood Watson, Jennifer Mitchell, & Marc Edward Shaw, features 10 essays on the acclaimed HBO show ranging from musings about the guys of Girls to feminist politics. My own contribution investigates the music used on the show from Charlie & Ray’s band and Marnie’s musical dabbling to the show’s hit-making soundtrack. The price tag is hefty, but please consider ordering this book for your library. You can find more information and read reviews here.
