Take a Look at Lena Dunham’s $3.7 Million Book Proposal

Earlier this year, Girls star and creator Lena Dunham made headlines when she sold her first book to Random House for a whopping $3.7 million. Titled Not That Kind of Girl: Advice by Lena Dunham, it’s full of “frank and funny advice on everything from sex to eating to traveling to work” in the style of Helen Gurley Brown’s Having It All. Now, Gawker has published the entire 66-page proposal for the book, which they point out made Dunham $56,000 a page. Head over to Gawker to take a look at the entire proposal, which you can use as a blueprint to scoring a $3.7 million book deal yourself. Just make sure you’re as talented and successful and popular as Lena Dunham is first.
