Lena Dunham, who in her HBO show Girls plays a character that no one should ever emulate, has been promised $3.7 million to write an advice/lifestyle book serving as a humorous, cautionary tale to her readers (mostly women, I’m guessing).
The book even has a working title: Not That Kind Of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned.
Wow. The word “banal” doesn’t even begin to describe that title. Let’s hope Dunham is able to put some of her charm and wit into another stab at it. It’s not unreasonable to think she’s a younger generation’s Tina Fey as her Hannah is a younger, hipper analog to Fey’s Liz Lemon, so expect to see Dunham expanding her reach to all sorts of outlets to become a media maven.
You know, like a white Oprah that no one hopes to relate to.
