Academy Award-nominated actress Abigail Breslin adds a new entry to her resume — author.
HarperCollins will publish Breslin’s collection of nonfiction essays, This May Sound Crazy, in October 2015. Based on her Tumblr blog, the book will include personal stories and advice.
“I started my Tumblr ‘Mixtapes and Winter Coats’ because I wanted to share my late night ramblings and feels, such as talking to my cat at 2 AM, with all of you,” said Breslin. “That blog evolved into my book, This May Sound Crazy. I hope when you read it, you’ll see that you are not alone even when you’re wondering when it’s ok to text your crush first, which is the most terrifying situation ever.”
Breslin first made headlines with her Oscar-nominated breakout role in 2006’s Little Miss Sunshine. Since then, she’s had prominent roles in numerous films, including My Sister’s Keeper and Zombieland. Breslin will soon make her television debut on Ryan Murphy‘s Scream Queens, stars in the upcoming zombie flick Maggie and will release her first album in June.
“I’m so thrilled to be working with Abigail Breslin on This May Sound Crazy,” says HarperCollins executive editor David Linker. “She channels the angst of her generation with a fearlessness that’s at once hilarious and deeply moving. Anyone who’s ever had a broken heart or felt lost or who just wished for a perfect Christmas Day will feel instantly understood in these pages.”
Breslin was represented in the deal by CAA. Linker acquired the book for HarperCollins.
