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.

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.
