Random House Has Bought Lena Dunham's Book for $3.7 Million

The bidding is over for Lena Dunham's upcoming advice book, which was offered up to publishers for $1 million just last week. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Random House has nabbed the book proposal for Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned for a cool $3.7 million.

The book is said to be a collection of essays and illustrations offering advice to young women, because she's the voice of her generation (or something), and publishers are confident that Dunham is a "influential creative voice for young women." They are, reportedly, hoping that her book will break out in the same fashion that Tina Fey's Bossypants did upon its release last year.

No publication date has been announced yet, but Random House did release a press statement calling Dunham a "rare literary talent" and comparing her to legendary authors Nora Ephron, David Sedaris, and Helen Gurley Brown. So, there's that.
