Lena Dunham's literary agents are shopping her first book for over $1 million, Slate reports. Dunham has written and submitted a detailed proposal and sample chapters and will meet with the top five bidders on Friday. Inspired by late Cosmo editor Helen Gurley Brown's Having It All, Dunham's book, tentatively titled Not That Kind of Girl, is billed as a collection of self-deprecating personal essays that double as advice/cautionary tales, which is a little alarming because up until now I'd just been living my life according to her hit HBO series, Girls. Is that not how you're supposed to do it?
