Drescher book tag: $1 mil

'Nanny' thesp pens thoughts on triumph over cancer

Fran Drescher has sold a memoir of her successful battle with cancer to Warner Books for $1 million.

Warner editor Rick Horgan won the book in a heated auction, topping bids from several other editors, including Simon & Schuster’s Chuck Adams and HarperCollins’ Judith Regan. AMG’s Allan Nevins and Joel Gotler, who repped Drescher, sold her last book, “Enter Whining,” to Regan. The story of Drescher’s rise to stardom, “Whining” was a New York Times bestseller.

Drescher, long known for her role on TV skein “The Nanny,” has appeared in dozens of pics, including “Saturday Night Fever,” “The Beautician and the Beast” and Francis Ford Coppola’s “Jack.”

Book deal was well timed. Drescher graces the cover of the just published debut issue of Rosie’s McCalls. Thesp was diagnosed with uterine cancer last year, and the magazine story provides her view on beating the illness after catching it at an early stage.
