Rebecca Dana Pulls Two-Book Deal

img-author-photo---rebecca-dana_13324414882.jpgRebecca Dana, formerly of The Wall Street Journal and currently senior correspondent at Tina Brown‘s The Daily Beast, has just signed a two-book deal with Penguin Putnam.

Not much is known about the books beyond the title of the first: Jujitsu Rabbi and the Godless Blonde. Both will be published by Amy Einhorn at Penguin. Dana told FishbowlNY Jujitsu “will cover my last few years in New York and the coming one,” and “the second book is completely TBD.”

We’ve heard rumors that Jujitsu Rabbi will be about Dana’s relationship with a Jewish man of the cloth, which should be an interesting read from the fashionista.
