Lena Dunham has just signed a hefty book deal with Random House. After shopping her collection of essays called Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned, the Girls creator finally settled a deal for $3.5 million.
We’re thrilled to welcome Lena to Random House, said editor-in-chief and publisher of Random House, Susan Kamil. 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.
The book reportedly covers topics relevant to the 20-something female, including work, friendship, travel, love and sex. It was described by Random House as a book that offers frank and funny advice on everything from sex to eating and traveling to work.
Dunham released a statement about her book deal, saying she is thrilled to be working with and learning from the brilliant minds at Random House, and to be among their incredible roster of authors. I look forward to digging deep with Andy and co. to produce the most thoughtful and personal book I can.
