She's done the chicken dance in the windows of Saks, covered magazines, enthralled countless readers with her 'arm parties,' and now the Man Repeller's Leandra Medine is set to be a published author. Medine mentioned a book was in the works during an appearance on Bloomberg's Surveillance Midday back in September. Footwear News recently caught up with the fashion blogger, who confirmed her book would be out next year. And today Medine confirmed to us that her book, a collection of essays, will be published in April 2013 by Grand Central Publishing.
As for the title, it's still a work in progress.
She jokingly suggested, "'Man Repeller: A Series of Short Stories About Alien Life on Earth'," but added "my editor isn't into it." (This in response to my own biography title suggestion, Leah Chernikoff: I Worry About Things That aren't that Important.) Another working title? 'Uncertified genius,' she told Footwear News. We like both. OR how about Tales from the Man Repeller: An Arm Party For Your Soul. Just rolls right off the tongue...
Whichever title Medine and her editor settle on, this is one blog-to-book deal that's been a long time coming and we can't wait to read it.
