Lena Dunham Reportedly Lands $3.7 Million Book Deal

Actor, director and Girls creator Lena Dunham has sold the book proposal for her book Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned to Random House. According to The New York Observer, she inked a $3.7 million deal.

The New York Times had the scoop: “Ms. Dunham, the writer and star of the HBO comedy Girls, circulated a 66-page proposal with color, illustrations and a humor that publishing executives predicted could produce another best seller like Tina Fey’s blockbuster memoir, Bossypants.”

Random House is reportedly comparing Dunham’s style to Helen Gurley Brown, David Sedaris, and Nora Ephron. Dunham has published “First Love” in  The New Yorker and a short essay in Rookie.
