LINDY LINDLEY, N.Y. — It’s been a whirlwind year for the 25-year-old comedian and writer whose first novel, “A Woman’s Story,” is on the New York Times bestseller list.
“A Woman, My Life” is the story of Lenny, who is bullied by boys at school.
It was published last fall by New York Review Books.
Lenny has also written a play and a TV series, and is set to star in a movie, called “The Girl Who Played With Fire,” based on the best-selling novel.
The comedian, who also writes for TV, radio and podcasts, has been touring with the musical comedy troupe The Night Schoolers and the Broadway production of “The Lady and the Tramp,” starring Emma Stone and Tom Hanks.
She’s also working on her next book.
“I’ve been working for the last few months and I’m very excited,” she said.
Lenny said she was born with a disability and is a mother to two daughters.
She says the book, her first, has opened up a world of opportunity.
While Lenny is in New York, she is doing a tour of the U.S. and Canada.
Her story of a woman struggling with bullying has been a big influence on her life, said Lenny’s mother, Donna Lindley.
She said she didn’t know how much she wanted to write a book.
She didn’t have any money for a publisher.
But she found out she was pregnant and wanted to tell the story.
She’s been in therapy for four years, and she said she feels her life is better now.
She is working on “A Women, My Love,” which she said is a response to a lot of things that have happened in her life.
“There are so many things in my life that I have been through and I’ve been through them all by myself,” she told the crowd.
“I’m not going to say it’s a perfect book but I am trying to do something that’s bigger than myself.”
Lenny is married with two children.
