From the good people at Refinery29 comes the greatest publishing news we've heard since 2666 came out in paperback: America's Next Top Model is going to be a book. It's called "The Fierce Guide to Life"—obviously—and it purports to teach readers the lessons Tyra imparts to her modeling hopefuls each week on the show. Speaking of Ms. Banks, we can't wait to hear her introduce herself as a model, producer, TV host and author, but the book comes out in April, so we're going to have to hold our breath for another few months.
