$3.5 Milli for a 26-year-old? Must be nice. We boycotted this girl’s show at first because it’s worse than “Sex And The City” when it comes to showing the diversity of NYC, but we eventually gave in and have to admit Lena Dunham is kind of a genius… And now it looks like her hard work has paid off!
According to People reports:
Lena Dunham is already the successful star and creator of the hit HBO series Girls, but now she has scored an unprecedented book deal for a whopping $3.5 million.
After a bidding war, Dunham, 26, has signed a deal with Random House to publish her debut collection of essays titled, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned, according to the New York Times.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Lena to Random House,” said Susan Kamil, the editor-in-chief and publisher of Random House. “Her skill on the page as a writer is remarkable – fresh, wise, so assured. She is that rare literary talent that will only grow from strength to strength and we look forward to helping her build a long career as an author.”
Dunham started the bidding frenzy by circulating a 66-page proposal for the book. According to the Times, which has a copy of the proposal, the essays will touch on a number of subjects, including work, sex and morality.
Lena, we just want you to know that if you need some black friends to help you consult on your book or your show we’re here for you. For a small fee. We assure you, your work will be better for it.
