About Lenny Books

Random House has joined forces with Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner to launch a new publishing imprint in 2017. LENNY will be a home for exciting, emerging voices–in fiction and non-fiction–that Lena and Jenni Konner are already attracting and publishing successfully in their newsletter and popular website.

Mission Statement

“While we love our home on the Internet, Jenni and I are both voracious readers (of books and book reviews) who are constantly trading titles and allowing them to stir us creatively. Our friendship often doubles as a book club. Lenny books will aspire to push the ball forward on the issues that matter to our audience, with wit and style. We hope to see them sticking out of purses and riding public transportation everywhere.”
