(Newser) – Kathy Griffin’s upcoming memoir may propel her up from life on the D-list, after the work-in-progress fetched more than $2 million at auction, the New York Observer reports. The comic has earned devoted fans for her turns on Suddenly Susan and My Life on the D-List. Her literary agent, Dutton’s former editor-in-chief, sold the tome to Random House imprint Ballantine. All involved declined comment.
