Lena Dunham Signs $3.5 Million Random House Book Deal

By |

‘Girls’ creator and actor Lena Dunham has sold her book of essays to publishing company Random House for a reported $3.5 million.

The book, titled ‘Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned,’ has earned a solid reputation among publishers, with Random House company likening her to well-regarded authors David Sedaris and Nora Ephron.

The New York Times has reported that the collection of essays will cover things like “friendship, travel, sex, love and mortality,” including one particular section describing “some radically and hilariously inappropriate ways I have been treated at work/by professionals because of my age and gender.”

Dunham released a statement after the news broke saying that she was “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 [executive editor] Andy and co. to produce the most thoughtful and personal book I can.”
