Zayn Malik is one of the great literary talents of our generation, so it’s only natural that he would land a book deal for his memoir at the ripe age of 23.
Titled Zayn, the book hit shelves November 1st (how long does it take to write a memoir anyway? Like, a couple of weeks?) and will be published via Penguin Random House, which has published the autobiographies of many of Malik’s contemporaries, including Maya Angelou, George W. Bush, Patti Smith, Buzz Aldrin and Solomon Northup.
Seriously though, are you kidding me, Penguin Random House? Are you so hurting for cash that you’re actually publishing the memoir of a 23-year-old pop star? How many chapters will be dedicated to his relationship with Gigi Hadid? Does anyone actually believe Malik is going to write this thing himself?
But that’s not all. Malik is such a prodigy that in between penning his book he’s also been prepping a series for NBC called Boys, based on his experience in One Direction. He’s a regular Lena Dunham, this one. Zayn Malik: the voice of our generation.
You can pre-order Zayn for $19.99.
