The Inevitable Lena Dunham Book Proposal

It had to happen. Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO’s Girls, New Yorker contributor, frequent panel participant and Oberlin grad, is shopping a book proposal, the Post reports.

Although a source told the Post that the book, tentatively titled Not That Kind of Girl, is slated to go for a minimum of $1 million dollars, it’s not all about money. It’s about being unique and interesting.

“Instead of just auctioning off the book to the highest bidder and having them publish it, they are doing it in a unique way,” a publishing insider told the Post. “The top five bidders in this week’s auction will sit down with Lena on Friday for a meeting. She’ll then choose from those offers.”

The book is being billed as “a modern take” on Helen Gurley Brown’s Sex and the Single Girl — but with a self-deprecating twist, according to Slate, who got a look at the proposal. Topics include “candid accounts of losing her virginity, trying to eat well (detailed diet journal included), obsessing about death, and so on,” reports Slate. We can’t imagine how there could possibly be more to say about losing her virginity, but we are sure Ms. Dunham will think of something.
