Judy Greer essay collection forthcoming
You might know her from FX’s animated show Archer as the voice of Cheryl, or if you’re an Arrested Development fan, she’ll always be Kitty Sanchez, but with the upcoming publication of her first book, Judy Greer is proving that in addition to being a comedic actress, she is also a comedic author. Doubleday has recently acquired the rights to Greer’s humorous essay collection, I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star.
Greer’s essays cover a variety of topics, from growing up in the Midwest to her career in film and television (often playing a “best friend”) as well as other predicaments, such as a solo trip she once took to Spain.
“So this is me, just trying, in book form, to introduce myself. This is who I am. This is what I think about things. This is stuff that happened to me, that could have just as easily have happened to you. I think I am really lucky to be where I am in life, but I’ve never really lost that feeling that I don’t fit in, and if you have, will you please email me and tell me how you did it? I’m serious,” Greer said in a press release.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the book deal gave Greer an advance of close to $1 million with a tentative 2014 publication date.
