Luc Carl Lands Book Deal for The Drunk Diet

Musician, party promoter, and bar manager c Carl has inked a book deal with St. Martin’s Press for a book about how he lost weight while drinking heavily.

Executive editor Kathy Huck acquired the book, and it is set for a 2012 release. Carl has made headlines for the last few months as he reportedly rekindled his relationship with his girlfriend, Lady Gaga. He keeps a Twitter account with nearly 20,000 followers.

Here’s more about the book: “The Drunk Diet is Lüc’s groundbreaking memoir about how he was able to drop the weight, fine-tune his body, and still party every single night of the week … The Drunk Diet is much more than a lame series of ‘do this, don’t do that’ tips—it’s an awe-inspiring tale of an ordinary rock ‘n roll guy who managed to transform a lifestyle based around whiskey and 5:00 AM cheeseburgers into a wildly successful fitness regime.”
