Following the success of her HBO TV series, Girls writer, actress and director Lena Dunham has reportedly signed a whopping $3.5 million book deal with Random House.
The talented 26-year-old is planning to release a collection of her autobiographical essays, with advice on sex, love, diet and travels. It’s thought that the essays sparked a huge bidding war, but according to AceShowbiz, Dunham inked a deal yesterday (October 8).
"There is nothing gutsier to me than a person announcing that their story is one that deserves to be told, especially if that person is a woman."
Dunham said of her advice book, which has reportedly been entitled ‘Not That Kind Of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned’.
It’s thought that Dunham will give advice from first-hand experiences and it’s likely to be a big hit, sparking rumours that this could be ‘the new Carrie Bradshaw’.
In the collection, she touches on losing her virginity, trying to follow a healthy diet as well as a weird obsession with death. She offers tips on how to stay focused on her work, as well as dating advice. There’s also a section called, ‘the most awkward date ever with an older director”.
We can't wait for it to hit the shelves.
Could we finally have something that fills the gap of SATC?
