Five books for viewers of HBO’s "Girls"

At B & N Reads Melissa Albert tagged five books to celebrate the start of the new season of HBO’s Girls, including:
The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P., by Adelle Waldman

Waldman’s gimlet-eyed, Brooklyn-set debut examines a callow young man’s romantic entanglements through a magnifying mirror. Nathaniel P. is a modestly successful writer with a certain scruffy, indecisive charm, who shambles through one relationship and into another, learning very little about himself on the journey. The Girls would be right at home among his artistically ambitious, emotionally shallow crew, and you know he’d end up dating at least two of them.

The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. also appears among Esquire's five most important books of 2014 and Radhika Sanghani's top ten books to make sure you've read before graduating college.
