Anna Kendrick book: Scrappy Little Nobody gets a cover
The cover for Anna Kendrick’s new book is as pitch-perfect as they come.
The 30-year-old actress and singer tweeted the cover art for her debut compilation of personal essays, Scrappy Little Nobody, on Tuesday afternoon, showing off the sleeve’s minimal, blue-hued design.
Scrappy Little Nobody marks the first literary venture for Kendrick, who previously scored an Oscar nomination for her performance in the George Clooney drama Up in the Air ahead of headlining the commercially successful Pitch Perfect films in 2012 and 2015.
“I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I’d like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself,” Kendrick wrote of the project on the book’s website. “And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I’m very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea.”
Kendrick also shared a sneak peek at what fans can expect within the pages of the nonfiction collection, tweeting an excerpt in which she describes her on-set behavior during photoshoots.
In addition to showcasing its writer’s signature self-deprecating humor, Scrappy Little Nobody offers her “one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture,” according to the official synopsis.
Scrappy Little Nobody will be published Nov. 15 by Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone imprint. Check out the book’s cover below.
