The book's structure is inspired by Helen Gurley Brown's Having It All and, judging by the proposal, it will allow readers the same deeply personal glimpse at Dunham that anyone who's seen her HBO comedy has become accustomed to.

Here are a few memorable quotes from Dunham's million-dollar proposal:

•"I went to my first Women's Action Coalition meeting at age three."

•"Cassie was a very fat girl we knew who we had nicknamed fat Cassie because she also wasn't that nice."
