Attention good girls: Give up, or get your hands on some drugs. According to Page Six, Cat Marnell has a book deal worth “up to half a million dollars.” The book will “[chronicle] her sexual and narcotic adventures.”
Marnell, if you need reminding, is the wild child who wrote about using Plan B as her only form of birth control while working as xojane’s health and beauty director. Eventually Jane Pratt’s team ordered her into rehab, and eventually fired her when she refused to go. She told Page Six then, “I couldn’t spend another summer meeting deadlines behind a computer at night when I could be on the rooftop of Le Bain looking for shooting stars and smoking angel dust with my friends and writing a book, which is what I’m doing next.” From there, she became a Vice columnist, and the Daily Beast called her “the Internet’s most divisive writer.”
Page Six has more on the future book:
The proposal details her numerous sexual conquests. Aside from four abortions, she recalls getting “choked out by a Park Avenue millionaire kid in a pine grove by the reservoir at 4 a.m.” and “sex in vacant lots in Bushwick with white rappers.”
The book will be published by Simon & Schuster, and is said to be titled How To Murder Your Life. Marnell tells the Atlantic, “I can’t confirm anything except that I am very excited and the book will be worth every penny.” COOL!
