Lena Dunham, creator and star of the controversial HBO series Girls, is branching out into another medium: book-writing. The 26-year-old multitalented star has received a $3.5 million advance from Random House to author an essay collection called “Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned.”

 According to the New York Times’ Media Decoder blog, the deal followed a significant bidding war.

Dunham, who also directed the 2008 film “Tiny Furniture,” is clearly seeking to follow in the footsteps of such past publishing successes as Tiny Fey’s “Bossypants” and Mindy Kaling’s “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” The second season of Girls will begin in January.
