Jacobs' proposal for the biography sold in an auction to Farrar, Straus & Giroux, according to capitalNewYork.com. The publishing deal is reportedly for $251,000-$499,000.
"I think I'm the only person in New York who not only never met Elaine Stritch, but never saw her perform live," Jacobs stated. "I'm frantically spinning that as an advantage because I feel like most people who interacted with her had a very strong reaction to her ... Since I never met her in the flesh, I lack any bias."
