Hannah would kill for this book deal! Girls creator Lena Dunham reportedly signed a deal that will make her $3.5 million richer.
According to The New York Times, the 26-year-old Emmy nominee's book of essays Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned has found a publisher in Random House Publishing Group. Expected to harness the same success as Tina Fey's bestseller Bossypants, the Times reports the book will be "a 66-page proposal with color illustrations, and will cover topics such as "work, friendship, travel, sex, love and mortality."
Dunham said she's "thrilled to be working with and learning from the brilliant minds at Random House, and to be among their incredible roster of authors. I look forward to digging deep with Andy and co. to produce the most thoughtful and personal book I can."
Coincidentally, Dunham's character Hannah in Girls is also an aspiring essay writer -- only in her case, she has trouble even getting people to read her works. Season 2 of Girls returns in Jan. 2012, while Dunham's essays have yet to get a release date.
