Lena Dunham is Writing An Interactive Romance Novel During Quarantine

Lena Dunham has opened up about her plans during quarantine and revealed that she’s actually writing a romance novel.

But, not just any romance novel – an interactive one.

“I know it can get a little stir-crazy, and I think the best way to keep community is through shared storytelling,” Lena, 33, shared in an Instagram post.

The serialized novel will be called “Verified Strangers” and follows Ally, a frustrated singleton who navigates the dating scene in Los Angeles. A new chapter is expected to debut on Vogue every Tuesday and Friday.

“A romance novel is the pulpiest and most distracting fun you can have and a medium I’ve long wanted to work in (probably since I stole ‘Forever’ by Judy Blume out of my babysitter’s backpack; it’s not Danielle Steele, but it was the sexiest thing I’d ever read.),” Lena told the magazine.

She added, “So let’s create one together. I’ll write, but you’ll be able to vote and your vote counts. Together let’s try and urge Ally toward the right lover — and connect to each other in the process.”
