Lena Dunham Shopping a Book Proposal

Actor, director and Girls creator Lena Dunham is shopping a book proposal.

Slate’s Brow Beat culture blog broke the news, giving us a glimpse at the Not That Kind of Girl: Advice by Lena Dunham book proposal that reportedly set a million dollar start for the publishing auction.

If you want to read her writing, Dunham has published “First Love” in  The New Yorker and a short essay in Rookie, both included a candid look at love, sex and youth. She also has more than 354,000 followers on her Twitter feed, posting fairly regular commentary about her life.

Here’s more from Slate: “What’s to follow that intro, according to the proposal, are candid accounts of losing her virginity, trying to eat well (detailed diet journal included), obsessing about death, and so on, along with tips about how to stay focused on work, how not to ruin a potential relationship, and what have you. One section will recount various ways in which older men continue to be condescending and sexist, and will describe ‘the most awkward date ever with an older director.’ Another will describe travel to various places, including Israel and Japan.”
